LONDON – British police investigating the felling of the Sycamore Gap tree, a much-loved landmark in northern England whose dramatic silhouette featured in a Hollywood movie, have made a second arrest, they said on Friday.
The tree was cut down overnight between Wednesday and Thursday in what police believe was a deliberate act of vandalism.
Northumbria Police, who arrested a 16-year old male on Thursday, said a male in his 60s had also been arrested in connection with the incident and remains in custody.
The tree was set in a natural dip in the otherwise treeless, sweeping landscape alongside Hadrian’s Wall.
It was also known as the ‘Robin Hood Tree’ after featuring in the 1991 film “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves”.
