A tree that had partially blown over due to high winds has been cut down.
The 25ft-high conifer tree on London Road, Newark, was hanging precariously at an angle to the pavement of around 45 degrees.
A Nottinghamshire Police spokesman said officers had attended as the tree could have posed a risk to passers-by if it fell into the road.
Highways officers attended to make an assessment and remove the tree.
The incident was reported just before 11am.
