Man sleeps through tree fall

A man carried on sleeping as a 35ft tree crashed into his home.

The beech tree fell into Oscar Henriques’ spare room in Exeter, Devon at 3am – just feet from where he slept.

He was only woken when police woke him with constant phone calls an hour later.

Oscar, who lives alone, said: “I did hear a noise but I thought it may be an earth tremor so I went back to sleep.

“The next thing I knew the police were ringing me and I saw a giant tree on my house. I couldn’t believe it.”

The repairs to the house will cost thousands, reports the Sun.

Oscar added: I’ve been asking the council to sort that tree out for 24 years.”
