Has anyone seen a tree ? - (26/10)

Lots of water overnight Saturday night/Sunday morning left us slightly awash in the Torrs today, it has at last moved the enormous tree down river but it looks like the tree may have caused some damage to a footbridge about half a mile down stream, pictures of this to follow some stage tomorrow.

The height of the water meant that our control system automatically shut the screw down as a precaution, and with water still spilling over the top of the closed sluice gate this evening it will be Monday morning before we attempt to start the screw again.

Lots of debris that had become stuck in the fish pass has been cleared to allow the fish a clear passage upstream to spawn.
