However, police officers had a lucky escape upon investigating the incident as another tree collapsed directly on their vehicle, but no officers were hurt.

Sergeant Craig McNeill, of the Divisional Road Policing Unit at Inverurie, said: “Our thoughts are very much with the man’s family and friends at this time.

“Officers responding to this crash had parked a distance away due to weather conditions.

“On returning to their van they discovered a tree had fallen on it. No-one was injured.”

It comes after the news of two deaths under the same circumstances were revealed earlier today. 

Cumbria Police said a man from Lancaster died in Ambleside after a tree fell on him just before 11pm on Friday.

In Northern Ireland, a man was killed when his car was hit by a falling tree in County Antrim on Friday.
