Swing attached to Oak tree

Reported in the Vandalised tree category anonymously at 14:36, Sunday 21 June 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2165831.

Someone has attached a swing seat to the oak tree on the village green. The metal chains are digging into the bark and there is damage to the soil underneath where people are scraping the ground with their feet. It ideally needs to be removed as it’s causing significant damage to a mature Local tree.
