Police officers are at the scene of another tree felling protest in Sheffield this morning.

Residents against the felling of trees on Chippinghouse Road, off Abbeydale Road, have gathered in a bid to stop Sheffield Council contractors working.

Trees are being felled across the city as part of a road and pavement improvement programme.

Protesters have staged a number of demonstrations over recent months, with one of the most heated taking place on Rustlings Road, Endcliffe, in November.

Council contractors arrived on that street while residents slept in a bid to start the felling work before objectors could halt their work.
