For the second day running Southport was battered by gale force wind, this time bringing down a number of tree’s in Botanic Gardens Churchtown, Monday 30 November 2015.

Members of the public pit a few benches around to deter people from climbing on it.

Unfortunately Sefton Council made three park staff redundant earlier this year, so it may be cleared some time in the future.

The Met Office warning said: “Please be aware of the potential for some disruption due to the strong winds.”
