Scots hotel guest rushed to hospital after being hit by falling tree


A Scots hotel guest was rushed to hospital after being hit by a falling tree.

Emergency crews raced to Woodlands Hotel in Broughty Ferry, Dundee, on Friday night.

The alarm was raised just before 10pm.

Police told the Daily Record a man was struck by a falling tree outside the hotel, on Panmure Road.

The hotel guest was rushed to hospital for treatment to his injuries.

Police Scotland did not confirm the nature of the man’s injuries, his age or which hospital he was taken to.

The man’s current medical condition has not been confirmed.

Hotel chiefs confirmed the incident to The Courier and said the guest had ‘returned home’.

General manager Nikki Robertson said: “We can confirm that there was incident yesterday evening and emergency services were in attendance to assist.

“Due to customer confidentiality, we cannot discuss any details.

“The guest has now returned home and we would like to wish them a speedy recovery.

“The hotel is cooperating with all parties concerned.”

A police spokeswoman said: “We received a report of a man having been struck by a falling tree on Panmure Road in Dundee around 9.50pm on Friday, November 26.

“The man was taken to hospital for treatment of his injuries.”

It comes in the wake of Storm Arwen that’s caused devastation across much of the country.

In the north east, one of the worst affected areas, police confirmed that residents could be without power or water for the next few days as clear-up work gets underway.

Schools and vaccination centres are among some facilities that remain closed as of Monday due to damage caused.

ScotRail dubbed the storm as ‘one of the worst in years’ as rain, wind and snow battered the country over the weekend.
