The tree is one of many at the new Yak & Yeti restaurant in Frankwell, Shrewsbury, that have been examined by Brendan Tuer of town based Future Arbor.

Mr Tuer's report to Shropshire Council, which is considering an application to carry out works to trees on the site, says the existing garden is currently overgrown, dark and damp underfoot.

He is seeking planning permission to enable the removal of some of the trees and recommend pruning works to others.

"Some trees have been identified for removal due to their posing a hazard, others to increase the amount of daylight entering the garden," his report reads.
