A 150-year-old tree knocked down in storms is to be redeveloped into a children's adventure play area.

The 30-metre Turkey oak tree fell at the National Trust property Knightshayes Court in Tiverton.

Altogether 400 trees have fallen in storms there, but thousands more have been replanted.

The National Trust said: "This is a great place for people to come and see the magnitude of the trees. It's an amazing landscape."
