Timber! Tree falls in Todmorden blocking road

Police from the Calder Valley Neighbourhood Policing Team were called to a fallen tree in Todmorden that blocked Rochdale Road for a number of hours.

The tree had collapsed at the junction of Bacup Road yesterday and on arrival officers found one half of the carriageway fully blocked although a quick call to Calderdale Council solved the issue.

They promptly attended and used chain saws to clear the tree from the road.
The Calder Valley NPT Facebook page said: “Officers were stumped as to the reason the tree fell, maybe we’ll have to call in special branch to help us twig what the root of the issue might have been.”
