Residents are furious after a Christmas tree which was planted only in March was felled.

Workers for Primesight, which owns an advertising hoarding on Barrow Road, Wincobank, felled the tree while cutting grass.

Community campaigner Bridget Ingle said: “The tree wasn’t on their land and was paid for by hard-earned grant money.”
