These pictures show the devastation that has been caused by the wholesle destruction of hordes of trees as part of the Church Road development.
Trees that stood for generations have been wiped out in minutes. Local residents have been left devastated and, frankly, who can blame them.
All of the trees have stood for generations and, as well as providing shelter and beauty for local residents, were also a haven for wildlife in an area all too lacking in greenery. Some of the residents I spoke with today were clearly very angry and practically in tears.
Having been left with a derelict eyesore on their doorstep for years, residents have now lost the one thing worth preserving on the site.
A press release is on its way to local media and I hope to post some more pictures soon of the site before the trees were obliterated.
