A town council has hit out at the "unauthorised removal" of trees from an area in north Lowestoft.

Expressing disappointment after trees on Gunton Cliff and Links Road were "cut down without any consent," Lowestoft Town Council has urged anyone with information to contact them.

A town council spokesman said: "The removal of trees without consent and the appropriate licences is both a criminal activity and strongly against the Town Council’s Climate Emergency declaration.

"If you happen to witness any other unauthorised activity within this area, you should report this to police on 101.

"If nearby residents feel tree maintenance is required within the area, the Town Council - as landowners - should be contacted.

"Please note that the timber and brushwood currently stacked on the cliff are left as habitat mounds for wildlife and to aid biodiversity and should not be removed."
