From BA Facebook page
" Urgent Boating News - the River Bure is blocked by a fallen tree upstream of Coltishall. A number of fallen trees are restricting navigation throughout the Broads - please take extra care."

Who pays the cost of clearance, the BA or the owner of the tree?

If its blocking the navigation then the BA I guess as part of their duty to keep it clear. boat-sail

Yet highways authorities have a duty to keep the highways free of obstructions and can invoice the owner of trees etc that cause an obstruction if they have to remove said obstruction.

Update on further trees down across the broads
" Following high winds over the weekend there are a number of trees which have fallen down and are restricting the navigation:

• River Bure between Coltishall and Horstead - Numerous trees are down along the Wroxham to Coltishall reach restricting navigation. Our Ranger teams are working today to clear them. Please navigate with care.

• River Bure downstream of Wroxham – several trees are partially restricting navigation. These have been marked and will be dealt with as soon as possible. Please navigate with care.

• River Ant and River Yare – several trees partially restricting navigation. Will be marked and dealt with as soon as possible. Please navigate with care.Hoveton Viaduct boardwalk and Barton boardwalk - both closed due to dangerous trees. We will advise when these are safe to re-open.

• How Hill estate and nature trail – multiple path closures due to several dangerous trees.

Our Rangers are working to deal with these obstructions as soon as possible and get the navigation clear again.

Please navigate with caution, give plenty of space to obstructions and remain vigilant regarding dangerous trees and other debris if you are on the water or walking/cycling today.

If you have noticed any additional issues regarding the navigation please report these to Broads Control by calling 01603 756056 or emailing Broads.Control@broads-authority.gov.uk.

Thank you for your assistance."
