Work has begun to move a tree which has trapped Clacton pantomime cast members in a holiday park.

All but one of the actors in the Princes Theatre's production of Peter Pan were staying at a site at St Osyth.

They are due to have two packed-out audiences today at 11.30am and 1.30pm.

Only television presenter Jeff Brazier, who plays Peter Pan in the show, is unaffected.
