A large tree has toppled over in the centre of St Albans.

Firefighters rushed to St Peter’s Road at about 9.40am this morning because the Horse Chestnut had fallen into an open space.

No one was hurt in the incident.

It is not yet clear why the tree fell over.

“We have suggested possible replacement planting.”
