One of Yate’s most popular parks had to be closed for a day after a storm brought branches crashing to the ground.  Winds during the storm at the start of January reached 50mph, damaging an old tree.

As a precaution the park was closed, and after an inspection, tree surgeons decided the whole tree had to be removed.
