Rough sleeper crushed by a falling tree


One of the few people killed during the heaving flooding in November was sleeping rough. Twenty-one-year-old Michelle Conroy was sleeping in a tent when she was crushed by a tree felled by strong winds in Exeter, Devon. Two other people in the tent were injured, one of whom was her boyfriend, who she had gone onto the streets to join.
