A tree on Stonecutters Way by Howard Street South carpark - behind the old Palmers department store - has been ripped from its roots and is blocking a section of pavement.

Hazel Stewart, currently staying at an Airbnb in the area, said: "The tree was there when I last saw it.

"It was definitely there yesterday and I'm sure it was there this morning."

Mrs Stewart, 73 and visiting from Leicester, said she and her family have been inside all day, except once in the morning to take the dogs for a walk.

"Seeing stuff like this does make me worried," Mrs Stewart said.
