Michael Owen trapped overnight after tree falls across road as Storm Arwen causes chaos across Britain

MICHAEL OWEN was left STUCK at home as Storm Arwen tore across Britain.

The 41-year-old ex-England striker was unable to leave his property on Friday night after a huge tree fell across the road, completely blocking access.

Thankfully for Owen a team of people arrived in the morning to clear the damage left by the storm.

The retired striker stated "Looks like I won’t be going anywhere for a while" late last night.

Fortunately, Michael was rescued on Saturday morning, with him tweeting: "We are free. What a team" accompanied by pictured of workers chopping the tree into bits.

Of course - Twitter users had some fun with Owen's fallen-tree dilemma.

One said: "It didn't fall down. It listened to some of your commentary and laid down for a sleep."

A barrage of tweets followed the photo updates - in the style of Owen's commentary.

They read: "If I was to analyse the situation in the style of you Michael, I’d say that a tree has fallen down and blocked the lane."

Another joked: "Fair to say that the lane is being blocked. By a tree."

A third said: "The lane should do better on this occasion. You just can't give that amount of space to a tree."


Storm Arwen has wrecked havoc across the country and has tragically taken three lives.

140,000 homes have also been left without power.

From a footballing perspective - it has caused the postponement of a game between Tranmere and Stevenage.

As a result of 98mph winds, the roof of main stand roof was blown off at Prenton Park.

Owen had an illustrious career - with stints at Liverpool, Real Madrid, Newcastle and Man Utd.

A Premier League winner with Man Utd, the once-rapid forward also won the Ballon d'Or in 2001.
