JUST days after a village’s new library was opened, a storm has caused a tree to fall on its roof.

More than 150 people turned out to witness the opening of Long Crendon Community Library, with crime fiction writer Margaret Yorke cutting the ribbon.

Commons speaker John Bercow also attended.

Yet exactly one week after the opening, a tree has had to be removed from the roof, costing £500.

The roof’s hole must also be fixed and it is expected to cost an extra ‘few hundred pounds’. Chairman of the library, Isabelle Warner, said: “Luckily, Bucks County Council will be funding the repairs. We were all heartbroken when we heard, although the damage could have been an awful lot worse.”
