A broken branch from a tree which blocked access to a woodland forcing one local to “climb over to get through” has been cleared.

The National Trust has got rid of a large branch blocking the way into Tinker’s Wood, in High Wycombe, after it was reported by someone who struggled to get through.

The fallen branch was reported on Friday (July 16).
