Council removes conkers from tree after little girl suffers a FRACTURED skull

Little Katie Roden had to have surgery after a branch thrown into the tree to dislodge the chesnuts fell on her head
Safety-conscious council bosses have removed all the conkers from a giant chestnut tree after a four-year-old girl suffered a fractured skull walking beneath it.
Katie Roden had to have surgery after a branch thrown into the tree to dislodge the traditional playground favourites fell on her head.
The 2lb, 3ft-long branch split her skull open, severing a vein in her head and causing it to gush with blood.
Katie, now five, was rushed to hospital where her parents Tracey and James were told she was lucky the branch had not entered her brain.
However, Nottingham City Council has been blasted for this month sending its workers out to pluck hundreds of conkers from the tree over a year after the accident. Katie was out for a bike ride with her parents when a huge branch hovering in the tree overhead came crashing down on her skull on August 18.
Mrs Roden, 40, said she had been riding ahead when she turned around on hearing her husband's desperate cries.
She said: 'I knew from the tone of his voice that something was wrong.

'I turned around and he was covered in her blood, from the chin down to his knees.'

Doctors at Nottingham's' Queen's Medical Centre told the pair later that if Katie had been a year or two younger the branch would have pierced her soft skull, killing her instantly.

Fortunately, Katie emerged from three hours of surgery without complications but the Rodens later called the council, pointing out the dangers the tree posed.
Over a year later, the council has taken the unusual step of picking all the conkers from the tree, removing the temptation for youths to try and knock them loose.
However, the move has sparked angry protests from residents who have branded the action a waste of money.
In an online forum, one said: 'This is absolutely pathetic. This little girl has a lot to answer for.

Blood and cadaver alerts
dismissed by UK Government

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
