An unpleasant surprise awaited a Dunedin motorist today after a large tree branch fell on to their vehicle.

Police, Fire and Emergency New Zealand and Dunedin City Council contractors were called to help after the branch broke from a tree and crashed down on the car, parked on Lower Rattray St at Queens Gardens, around 1pm.

No one was in the vehicle, which was extensively damaged.

Can't see the 'council' wanting to have anything to do with this seeing as they don't want any cars or car parks.
