Debris and blasted trees litter the approach to the tunnel entrance. The entrance itself appears to have been cleared since the attack by R.A.F Bomber Command. The group of people standing just in front of the tunnel entrance were so taken by surprise by the low flying Mustang that they did not have time to run for shelter.
