EastEnders’ Diane Parish: Tree collapse could’ve killed my family

EastEnders star Diane Parish has told how a rotten tree fell on top of her car just before she was due to collect her kids from school.

Diane, who has played Denise Fox in the soap since 2006, was left shaken when the roadside sycamore gave way, “ruining” her black Audi and damaging the side of her house.

“I’m so angry — it could have killed my family.


“It ruined my car but thankfully everyone’s fine.” – Diane Parish speaking to Enfield Independent

Despite Diane’s claims that locals had lodged complaints about the state of the trees in her street, Enfield council have said they were not aware of any issue.

A spokesman said: “Had we had a complaint about safety we’d have surveyed the tree the same day. We’ve now removed the damaged tree and are inspecting others in the street to confirm they are safe.”
