Alert – tree on Wye

Please be aware for the following report from a canoe hire provider on situation they had to deal with on the Wye between The Boat Inn and Bredwardine:
A customer hit the tree in the middle of the river and pinned the boat to it. We managed to rescue the customer first and send them on their way with an additional canoe, which then gave us time to rescue the boat. We could only do this by pulling it out with my land rover winch. This tree poses a pretty serious issue! I am sure it is one of the trees that was under the Toll Bridge.
Attached is a map of the exact location. A video of the issue can be found here.
