A "BEAUTIFUL" tree has been wrongfully cut down in Hatfield according to a resident.

Julia Lewis believes the council fell the wrong tree in her street, Longmead.

The cherry tree had been sitting outside Julia's home for the last 27 years but was chopped in June.

Three months later she is still moaning at the council for not replacing it after what she reckons is a mistake.
