Motorists are being advised to avoid a busy main road after high winds blew a tree into the middle of it.

The 40ft. tree was brought down on Keighley Road, Colne, near to Laneshaw Bridge.

Motorist Dave McQuillan took this photograph shortly after the tree came crashing down.

He said: "I just got past this area and looked behind after an almighty crunch."
