A LARGE tree branch fell into a road in the centre of Dawlish yesterday afternoon. 

The branch blocked Brunswick Place, outside Brunswick Barbers.

It was reported one man may have suffered minor cuts including cuts in the incident when he became caught under the tree. 

The tree is between Brunswick Place and Dawlish Water.

Police, Dawlish Wildlife Warden, Dawlish Council, Teignbridge Council and the Highways Agency were alerted.

The police closed the road on arrival.

The fallen tree portion narrowly missed the wildlife compound but fell across a small temporary compound adjacent which had been built to accommodate three recently received goslings.

No birds were understood to have been affected.
