TWO people were rescued by firefighters after a "large tree" fell on a house in Bromyard.

Firefighters evacuated two people from a bungalow in Rowan Walk in Bromyard, off Winslow Road, shortly before 11.30pm on Thursday evening (July 9).

The tree had fallen onto the bungalow, covering the garden and blocking a footpath between Rowan Walk and Firs Lane.
