A SECTION of a footpath in a Taunton park is blocked this morning after a large tree branch fell.

It is unsure how the part of the tree came down in Lyngford Park.

A dog walker said: "You have to walk on the grass to get past.

"I've spoken to a couple of people and they had no idea what had happened.

Somerset County Gazette:

"It's a good job there weren't any children playing there at the time.

"It looks too big to have been vandalism, but who knows?"
