A large tree branch fell from a prominent tree in Bideford, blocking the road.

Chanters Road in Bideford was blocked after a large tree branch fell into the road.

At around 3pm yesterday (Sunday) the weather proved too much for the large pine tree as its branch snapped.

Taw and Torridge Tree Services were contracted to clear up the branch, as Highways closed the road.

No one was hurt.
