Original Bramley apple tree in Southwell dying

The original Bramley apple tree is dying from a fungal infection.

The tree was sown by a girl called Mary Ann Brailsford in 1809 in the Nottinghamshire town of Southwell.

Bio-scientist Prof Ted Cocking, who has cloned the tree, said the people of Southwell should care for the Bramley.
