We found the tree... - (27/10)

Well its in two big pieces now and causing damage as it heads downstream towards Marple. First reports suggested part of it had knocked down part of a foot bridge that crosses the River Goyt and sure enough its made a bit of a mess and the bridge needs some hefty repairs which the Derbyshire Park rangers are on to it already as they had already started to refurbish the bridge recently..

The other part of the tree is wrapped around a pipe across the Rover Goyt and New Mills Town Council have passed this info on to Transco to see if they are concerned at the potential damage this could cause to the pipe.
