High winds helped to bring down a tree at Cross Green, Ely, on Saturday but luckily none of the visitors to the Eel festival got in its way.
The tree - nestling within sight of the cathedral – fell to earth with a bump, splitting down the middle.
Happily it provided a focal point for children who enjoyed the novelty of free entertainment.
“Our granddaughter and her friends had a great time playing on it,” said one visitor.
“So did her granddad! But it was sad to see the loss of such a lovely tree.”
