Whilst on the subject what council moron allowed oak trees planted on Inverness drive they must be ten metres tall by now ?. One came down in the last storm and lucky it didn’t kill someone. The footpaths are all lifting and in fifteen years or so the trees are massive . Debris all over the the paths and driveways, I pity anyone with a house near one of these trees. The council has control on what trees are planted on berms a d therefore responsibility for the trees and damages.
