THE chainsaw massacre continues.

The latest victims being mature trees felled at various locations in the borough, including Dee Lane and Column Road in West Kirby and Birkenhead Park.

The same old excuses are given: diseased, dangerous or perilously close to residential property.

The specimens I have observed look remarkably healthy and very often nowhere near residential property.

Money would be better spent on keeping open Lyndale Special Needs School.
