Large branch broken off tree in enclosed area and resting on another ( quite thin) tree which doesn't look strong enough to support the fallen branch long-term.

  • I had intended to attach photos showing exactly where the branch was but this system does not allow it. There is an access lane behind the houses in West Town Road and the area where the branch is is on the motorway side of the lane, roughly opposite no 48.

    This morning, sometime between 9 and 12 am, another tree /branch has fallen down and it is hanging across the fence and partially blocking the lane. I managed to break off enough of it to be able to get to my garage so long as it stays where it is but it is not going to do any good to the fence - which was only repaired by Highways about a month ago.
