In Northumberland, north-east England, there is a UNESCO World Heritage site called Hadrian’s Wall. Next to it is a hill called Sycamore Gap, where a single sycamore tree stands and many visitors come here every year. It was such a famous tree that it was chosen as Tree of the Year in a competition held by Coed Cadw in 2016.

However, between the night of the 27th and the next morning, the river was cut down, leaving only the stump. It was obvious that someone had cut it with a chainsaw.

Police immediately arrested the 16-year-old, but it is unclear why he committed the crime. Police said they are waiting for tips from those who know the reason.

The shock of the residents on hearing that the landmark of this area had been brutally cut down was huge. He mourned the loss of a symbol of the north-east. Many people said it was a place full of memories of proposing to their partners next to the tree and scattering the ashes of their loved ones near the tree ▲ The famous Robin Hood tree in Northumberland, north-east England, was cut down. ▲ The stump remains strong, giving hope that it can grow again. PA Media Northumberland National Park Authority Chief Executive Tony Gates said the tree had been an “inspiration and part of British identity” for artists, writers and photographers. “A lot of people have a deep connection to this place and have great memories of it, and it would be a real shame to lose that,” he said. He added that he hoped it would not have too much of an impact on tourism as Northumberland had a number of other great attractions.

Photographer Ian Sprott said it was “heartbreaking”, while Hexham councilor Guy Offerman said it was “absolutely heartbreaking”.

But National Trust general manager Andrew Ford said the stump of the tree was so healthy that new shoots could grow under the trunk and cover the tree again.

The BBC is broadcasting a text message asking people to send in pictures of their memories of Britain’s most beloved tree.
