The second of Bury St Edmunds controversial steel trees has started ‘wilting’.

Only two months after the first of the St Andrew’s Street South trees, outside L’Occitane, was bent, apparently after a large vehicle reversed into it, it’s sister opposite Waterstone’s has suffered a similar fate.

Known to some as the dandelions, the stainless steel trees people either love or hate cost £20,000 and are now leaning towards each other at opposite ends of the cobbled section of the street.

The first tree has not yet been repaired.
