Dyffryn made the (national) news because it was targetted by a freak, brief storm yesterday. The wind exploded like sea breaking a sea wall, then there was thunder and heaven rending lightening and almost as soon as it started it stopped. It was very like a tantrum.
Ancient woodland was blown down and a tree fell across the railway which made it newsworthy, I guess. The urge to gawk was huge, this photo the reward.
(No one was hurt)
