Eye Castle and grounds will reopen tomorrow after it was closed due to branches falling from a horse chestnut tree.

Over the weekend some branches fell from the tree in the castle grounds.

Inspectors had a look at the tree today and said it was a reaction to the heat and there was no concern about rot.

There had been no access to the castle or the grounds.

The tree may still be cordoned off tomorrow.
