It looks very much like a Sycamore to me.

That's what I thought but the leaves look wrong for a Sycamore and it didn't have the usual Sycamore seeds on it. Thanks for the help.

Wish I had left the car and driver for a close up now, just the colours caught my eye. Used to have London planes on my street and the bark was always pealing, this is smoothish.

I'd say Field Maple, Acer campestre, but I'd need to see a close up of the leaves to be sure.

 

Second thoughts:  Just blown the image up and a couple of the leaves look very much like a Tulip tree, Liriodendron tulipifera.  Be worth comparing against that species as well.

Thanks John and Alan, my own fault for not grabbing a close up for the sake of a minor traffic jam. Thanks to you all.

Going with Tulip Tree after looking at a few web sites.

Tulip tree. Also known as yellow-poplar and tulip poplar. Liriodendron tulipifera. A member of the magnolia family native to my neck of the woods. And, they can get positively huge. Check this one out: https://www.flickr.com/photos/9991284@N05/2680728007
