    I went past this tree at 14:00 and saw it heavily leaning and reported it to the council and police. Guess they couldn’t be bothered to do anything until it was to late. Lucky no one was killed

      Any evidence to back up that claim that they couldn't be bothered? Have you got work rosters, call logs, accurate timings of the call you made and the time of the actual tree falling?
