Protestors from environmental group Extinction Rebellion (XR) have perched themselves in centuries-old oak trees that are threatened with being felled to make way for a new path.
The four trees - believed to be around 300-years-old - are set to be felled by contractors as part of a Persimmon Homes development in Ixworth Road, Thurston.
The protesters have joined residents who are trying to protect the trees from being taken down, but Persimmon have said the construction of the pathway is necessary under the terms of their planning permission.
XR set up banners along Ixworth Road at the weekend, but have since begun protecting the oak trees around the clock to safeguard their future.
The group believe the pathway can be built further away from the road and not require the trees to be removed, a plan they argue would be safer due to speeding drivers.
