Resident Rona Hallam sent pictures to the Journal of the damage to the tree.

Rona said: “To try to set fire to probably the biggest tree in the area is a senseless act of pointless vandalism. We pass it on dog walks. It’s the only really big oak tree in the area.”

Rona also said it appeared they had set GCSE papers alight nearby.
