A Tayside businesswoman had a narrow escape when a tree landed on her van during Storm Dennis.
Nicki Davidson was working at a wedding in a St Andrews hotel on Sunday when the tree crashed into her Astra.
She and colleague Greg Harrison were about to load their photo booth equipment into the vehicle and head home when guests rushed to tell them what had happened.
Nicki, who owns Fun K Pix Photobooth, was staggered to see the huge tree lying across the bonnet of her vehicle.
She said: “We were so glad we weren’t out there at the time.”
Storm Dennis was raging as the company entertained guests at the reception in Rufflets.
Nicki, from Dundee, said: “We were finishing packing up at about 11pm when some of the wedding guests came in and told us the tree had fallen right on to the bonnet of the van.
“It was panic stations. We couldn’t believe it when we saw it. The whole tree came down. Luckily the way it fell it missed a row of cars.”
To make matters worse the Tay Road Bridge was closed, making it a long trip for anyone to come to rescue the team.
Nicki and Greg took shelter for the night at the home of Greg’s parents nearby.
