He said: “We pulled back the curtains at 7.30am this morning and saw the tree just lying there. I was gutted when I first saw it.

“We have lived here 25, 26 years now the tree has been here ever since we moved in.

“I am very upset that the tree has gone as well as we have done a lot of fighting to keep it here.

“I am just glad no one was injured.”
