Today’s strong winds have blown a tree onto the city walls.

It came down on the stretch of wall near Lendal Bridge, opposite The Maltings pub.

The fall happened mid-afternoon on Sunday. It is not yet clear whether the whole tree has been uprooted or just a section has come down.

The fall has blocked the route, and that section of the walls has been closed.

Although some of the branches landed on or around the seats on the walls, no one is believed to have been hurt.
