A fallen tree blocked Cobden Avenue on Tuesday (Jan 2). It's believed the road was obstructed since at least 4 pm by the tree, which appeared to have fallen — presumably in the high winds — from Deepdene. Both carriageway and footpaths were cordoned off from the Midanbury Lane junction for a short stretch southbound. A similar incident happened closing the road in 2021.
