Maghull’s ‘tree down’ goes viral

It’s a funny old world; a tree comes down in Maghull and 6 days later the Liverpool Echo and BBC North West news run the story.

Of course this blog site was the first to explain what had happened to the unfortunate residents in Maghull’s Green Lane as my previous postings of 12th and 13th February record.

Here are a couple more photos which show the size of trunk and the damage done to pavement, driveway and underground services.

I had a further chat with some of the affected residents yesterday and can confirm that action is taking place to remove the tree, so that the full extent of the damage can be assessed and repairs made, at this very moment – 7.45pm.

The junction of Liverpool Road North and Green Lane in Maghull remains closed as a consequence of the massive tree coming down in last night’s winds.

The daytime pictures above give a much clearer impression of the scale of the problem that has to be tackled. Fortunately no one was hurt in the incident.
