Diss Town Council said a recent test found the tree’s condition had deteriorated to the point that it is no longer safe and presented a risk to the public.

The council added that 16 new trees have been planted in Diss Park over the last few years and two other Horse Chestnuts in the park are in better health.

A statement on the council website said: “A Beech at Diss Cemetery is also beyond nurturing and will be felled later this year. This is not the outcome we wanted but there is no other choice.”
