HOMEOWNER Ian Strasser got a surprise as he was watching television – the arrival of a “ginormous” tree in his garden.
He was in his sitting room last night when strong winds tore the tree from his neighbour’s property in Bonnyrigg, across a main road and into his garden.
He said: “I heard an almighty noise and thought there had been a car crash. The tree is ginormous.”
Police cordoned off the street while local authority workers began the long task of removing the tree.
