Activists who campaigned to save an elm tree held a celebration event at the weekend.

The protesters saved the tree from the chop as part of the Seven Dials roundabout development.

They officially brought their campaign to an end on Saturday with songs, poems and talks.

Tom Druitt, who camped out in the tree earlier this year, scaled it once more to remove the “Thank You” banner.

It was set to be chopped down as part of the roundabout improvements but plans were altered following public pressure.

The U-turn cost Brighton and Hove City Council £20,000.
