TEETERING TREE: An application to fix a garden wall destroyed by flooding, leaving a giant cedar tree teetering above the River Sid, has been supported by the town council.
Bridge House in Mill Street lost 40ft of its brick boundary, which also forms part of Sidmouth’s flood defences, during last summer’s extreme weather.

A final decision on the application will made by the district council.
