A large tree has come down in the Forches estate in Barnstaple. The damaged tree, at the roundabout between Victoria Road and Forches Avenue, was reported on Tuesday morning. What caused it to come down is unclear. Local councillor Julie Hunt said there was rope hanging from one of the trees branches, which could have been used to pull it down. Chanters Hill in Bideford was closed on Monday when a large tree branch fell into the road. That was caused by bad weather.
