It could easily have been the setting for a Beatrix Potter classic rendering of Winnie the Pooh.

"I don't see much sense in that" said Rabbit, surveying the devastation to his home on a Wisbech roundabout.

"No," said Pooh humbly, "there isn't. But there was going to be when it began. It's just that something happened to it along the way."

"Yes," replied Rabbit, wondering what would become of him and his chums now that all the foliage on the Freedom Bridge Roundabout was no longer there.

The rabbits sought comfort and solace in each other, wondering just what was to become of them now all the leaves had gone.

Pooh hurried to the Wisbech Standard offices to see if we had any answers.

"No," we replied. "But if we take a photograph perhaps someone will come up with an idea."

"Excellent," replied Pooh, happy that at last something might be done.
