A RARE 800-year-old Cedar of Lebanon tree fell at Bangeston Hall during the bad weather. The tree came down in two sections, with one part falling into neighbouring Bangeston Garden Centre, damaging a car and a van. The cedar, which was under a preservation order, is thought to be one of just three in the UK. PICTURE: Martin Cavaney Photography.
