THIS is the moment Storm Eunice tore down an 'iconic' tree in the middle of the street. 

Bude's Triangle Tree, in Cornwall, crashed to the earth earlier today - marking the "end of an era" for the town. Video footage of the incident has since been widely shared on social media.

Remarkably, no one is believed to have been hurt, but the storm has claimed the life of one man, who was hit by a falling tree in Ireland, and seriously injured at least one more. 

Eunice has so far left more than 110,000 homes without power, many of them in the South West of England, and forced schools and businesses to shut, as well as causing damage to buildings.

A wind gust of 122mph was recorded at The Needles on the Isle of Wight in what is thought to be a new record for England, the Met Office said.
