"I almost pulled my head in. Normally the aircraft aren't so low and so loud," the paper cited one unnamed woman as saying.
Must go down as a classic quote but more suitable for one's mother-in-law!

How ridiculous - so the 82 YO "spotter" recognized it was a FR 737 and called the old bill ?

Sound like a load of old Bllxx to me.

At what point does it say she recognized it as an RYR B737...?

She probably called the police not knowing what else to do...

Bit harsh isn't it...

But the report mentions someone being in the garden clearing up branches.
Why was she clearing up branches ? Had something previously blown them down ? If so, maybe it had also loosened roof tiles ?
