People gathered for a candlelight vigil last night and shared memories, with many saying it was a big part of their childhood while others spent happy afternoons there in the sunshine.

It appears to have split in three along the trunk – and while the cause is not yet known, it is believed to have been caused in part by recent extreme heat and drought periods.

Pictures from the crime scene last night show the devastation caused by the tree after it fell.
