A woman died after suffering serious head injuries when a falling branch came down on her at Kew Gardens, an inquest heard.

Erena Wilson, 31, from Hanwell, west London, was walking through the Royal Botanical Gardens when a large branch crashed down.

She died from fatal head injuries.

The trees were regularly assessed and given a hazard rating, the court heard.

It had been raining heavily earlier in the day – making tree branches vulnerable to dropping off suddenly.

However, John McLinden QC said Kew Gardens failed to put up signs warning of the danger.

The inquest at West London coroner’s court continues.
