Organisers say they may now erect fences around the tree to prevent any future attacks.

19-year-old Stephen Sutton touched people around the world as he raised millions for the Teenage Cancer Trust during his own battle with bowel cancer - at the same time as completing his own bucket list of challenges before his death in May.

Yellow ribbons became a symbol of his courage and positive nature.
