⛔ Storm Arwen Weather warning ⛔
Please take care when travelling this weekend and check your route before leaving home.
This driver had a lucky escape when a falling tree hit his vehicle while travelling down Lodge Lane, Elswick shortly after 5am this morning.
The road had been closed by the council but due to the winds the signage had blown away and some vehicles were continuing to use it.
The BMW involved received significant damage (pictured) but thankfully the driver avoided serious injury.
There are currently several road closures in place around the county as a result of the adverse weather conditions.
