The puzzle of the Monkey Puzzle

The controversial plan to cut down a 110 year old tree in the Lake District will go ahead, despite objections.The Monkey Puzzle Tree at the Brockhole Visitor Centre near Windermere was planted after the gardens were designed.

Now the Lake District National Park Authority want to return the gardens to how they originally were.

A meeting this morning heard that the tree and several others will be removed in the coming weeks despite a public petition to save it.
