A 47-year-old motorist was taken to hospital today after his car hit a fallen tree on the A2 at Canterbury.

The man, from Hawkinge, near Folkestone, called police to report that his car had ended up in the central reservation near the Wincheap slip road on the A2 London-bound, just after 6am.

He was taken to Ashford's William Harvey Hospitalbut his injuries are not believed to be serious.

Five other vehicles were involved in minor collisions as a result of the crash involving the tree and a 54-year-old man from one of them was also taken to hospital for a check up.

London-bound traffic was diverted off the A2 at the Bridge slip road while the crash was cleared. The road was re-opened at about 7.45am.

Police have contacted the agency responsible for motorway and roads maintenance asking for other trees in the area to be checked.
