Problem trees blamed for Sheffield woman’s fall

Have your say

TREES planted almost 100 years ago are now so overgrown they are causing a safety hazard, a Sheffield pensioner claims.

Geoff Kay, of Western Road in Crookes, says his street is being blighted by several neglected trees - which were first planted in memory of the part played in World War One by former pupils of Westways Primary School.

The 80-year-old, who has lived in the area for 50 years, says the problem has become so bad that roots are raising the pavements from beneath, and he fears trees toppling onto houses during severe weather.
