Fallen tree lands on England cricket player's car
A FALLEN tree has damaged the car of an England cricket player who had come back to Gerrards Cross to visit friends and family.
Alex Hales, who plays for Nottinghamshire and the England Twenty20 International side, parked his Jaguar XF in Orchehill Avenue at about 2pm.
Half an hour later he was told a tree had blown down onto it.
The road, opposite the entrance to the Gerrards Cross Lawn Tennis Club, is currently closed, while council workers cut the tree and move it.
Alex said: “My dad works as a groundsman at the tennis club and it is club week this week.
“I went to see a few old friends and then I come back to that.”
He said he went outside to see a “whole tree wedged across my car.”
He has rung Jaguar, who is the official vehicle supplier of the England Cricket Team, who will pick up the car and provide him with a hire car.
Alex said: “There is a big dent in the windscreen and the wing mirror is hanging off.
"I was supposed to be going up to Nottingham- that has put a dent on that.”
His mum and dad live in the Gerrards Cross area.
He joked: “I had come back to see them and catch up with old friends. I wish I hadn’t now.”
