Cutters were left shocked after the scale of one of their jobs turned out to be a tree that had fallen on to a house.

Leon Brown Arb-Agri Contracting, based in Great Barton near Bury St Edmunds, received notice of the job in Thurston last Tuesday. 

Owner Leon Brown had taken the call, but as he was on holiday, he asked his team to visit the home the following day.

Luke Ames, who works for the business, said they had to cancel their planned jobs for the day to tackle cutting the tree.

He said: "It was a shock. We had two jobs booked in that day.

"Leon had told me it must have been as he got the call and said there was a tree that had fallen on the a house.

"I thought we will just swing by to see what we were dealing and saw it was massive."

After cancelling their other jobs for the day, the team got to work on the effort. 

They secured the tree in order to make sure it didn't fall anymore before lifting it out of place. 

Fortunately, the homeowners were not in at the time, but noticed the incident had happened on their doorbell camera.

"They were fine," added Luke.

"I think there was one lady in the house at the time.

"The woman told me that she was under the tree raking the beech nuts 10 minutes before it happened."
