PC Jane Bickley, an investigator for the Peninsula Road Safety Partnership, tweeted this 'tree-mendous' photo.

Despite the yellow hi-vis jacket tied to the end of the top of the tree, this doesn't follow safety standards.

According to the Department of Transport vehicles with an overhang front or rear more than 2 meters need marker boards in place, and those over 3 meters need to give at least two clear working days notice to Police.
