Fifty trees will be planted in Havering as part of a new initiative to spruce up the borough.

In 2013, 157 trees were planted around the borough by the council.

This year trees will be planted to the south of Thurloe Gardens, Waterloo Estate and along Western Road in Romford.

The project - organised with independent charity Trees for Cities - consulted local residents, community groups and businesses to identify sites for planting.

Councillor Barry Tebbutt, cabinet member for the environment, said: “We’re really pleased to be working with Trees for Cities again and it’s always great to plant more trees.

“The benefits of which will be felt by generations to come.”

A community planting ceremony took place on Thursday on George Street, Romford, with children from Hylands Primary School, in Granger Way.
