This is the shocking moment a huge tree missed crushing a car by inches.

The video was captured on dash cam by Anthony Hughes who uploaded the dramatic clip to YouTube with the simple caption: “Near miss tree in Wallasey”

Storm Ali brought strong winds to the region on 19th September which downed tree’s right across Liverpool and Wirral.

The fallen tree blocked the road for hours as drivers had to wait for specialist tree surgeons to clear the area.
