A MAN has spoken out on the scary moment he watched two large oak trees crash through his fence into his garden.

Brian Wilcock got an unexpected surprise when he watched strong winds cause multiple trees on Sling Lane Playing Fields to fall over.

The Malvern resident's home overlooks fields and he said his garden fence had been completely destroyed due to the weather.

Worcestershire is currently feeling the effects of Storm Pia which has led to a disruption in train services and roads becoming blocked due to fallen trees.

"The two came down together and completely demolished our new garden fence. 

"It is scary as there is one very ginormous oak tree, and at the moment in time, my concern is this giant tree."

He said if the wind happened to change direction, then the giant oak tree could hit his home.

Mr Wilcock said he had contacted Worcestershire Country Council over the fallen trees.

"On Sling Lane Playing Fields, there is a whole ring of spectacular trees, and suddenly, there are gaps where the trees were.

"It is one of the largest open public spaces in Malvern and it is very pretty - but it is now looking like a battlefield."

Several trees have fallen down and closed roads in the country due to Storm Pia.
