North of England Correspondent

Two men have appeared in court over the felling of the Sycamore Gap tree, next to Hadrian’s Wall in rural Northumberland – with damage estimated at £620,000.

Daniel Graham denied a charge of criminal damage, while Adam Carruthers entered no plea.

The world famous tree was found cut down in September last year.
