Half a Poplar fell earlier in the year in the Abbey Meadows. The trunk and branches were splayed on the ground like the parts of a dinosaur skeleton. People climbed on it and reduced the twigs and small branches into even smaller bits. The larger branches were sawn off.
The other half of the Poplar has also fallen. Poplars are tall and become brittle as they reach the end of their natural lifespan.
The second half is now splayed out like the first.
