A resident has helped firefighters scramble to stop a 20ft tree falling on a Milton Keynes bungalow in the high winds this evening.

It is the second incident as a result of the high winds sweeping across MK on Thursday night.

Firefighters rushed to the scene at Withycombe, Furzton, Milton Keynes at around 7.25pm where the tree was said to be in danger of falling onto the single story home.
