Defence secretary refuses Treasury demands for military cuts

Have your say

PRESERVATION orders have been placed on two oak trees despite objections from neighbours.

The orders were put in place by councillors at Fareham Borough Council yesterday.

The two trees, that are around 80 to 100 years old, are located in St Edmund Close, Titchfield Common.

Neighbours feared they would not be able to prune the trees when needed. The order means they will now have to apply to the council before carrying out work.
