Daniel Mullinger from Essex, was in the Norfolk Woodland, he was there for some fun with 10 other children undertaking a "Monster Trail" searching for clues. However, everything went horribly wrong when a 70ft branch fell from a nearby beech tree thought to have been over 150 years old, killing Daniel instantly and severely injuring three of the other children. 

The National Trust who are responsible for the Woodland have denied  liability  stating that regular checks were made of the trees. However, this tree should have been designated as "high risk" and urgent steps should have been taken to prevent the branch becoming a deadly hazard but wasn't.
Another tragic accident which could have been avoided.   I hope that justice will be done for Daniel who has lost his life at such a young age.

I recently blogged on another sad case involving a falling branch from a tree.
