Branch hits car, blocks traffic on Dunedin street

A large branch came down this afternoon, smashing into a car and blocking traffic on a South Dunedin street.

A Fire and Emergency New Zealand (Fenz) spokesman said they were called to King Edward St near The Kensington pub at 1.38pm.

The branch hit an unoccupied car and blocked traffic to one lane.
