Mrs Thomas said: "Nobody was hurt, there was nobody on the property at the time. It was fine when I left at half past five last night.

"I only started as head here in September and it is actually our second tree to come down since then. So it has been a very interesting start to the year, with Covid as well."

Mrs Thomas added: "We have just has a quote for a new bike shed for £12,000."
