Downpipe Discharge onto roof after New Guttering fit.

I've just had new guttering fitted and the fitters made a slight change to the layout of the downpipes I had.

Previously I had guttering from my pitched garage roof join the downpipe from the house roof and them carry onto together to the drain. Now the house roof down pipe ends just above the garage rood and is set to discharge onto the tiles and lead flashing of the garage roof, just above the gutter. My concern is that if there is heavy rain this water will not spread over the garage roof tiles but splash off them and onto the ground in front of the garage. Also, over time with all the water hitting the same place on the lead / tile will there be excessive wear to the lead / tile ?

I'll upload a couple of photo's to show the issue.

Looks ok to me but if its not working then they could bring the down pipe past the gutter and branch into that.
