Organisers of Haigh Woodland parkrun, a 5km run held at the park each Saturday morning, warned earlier today that runners may have to use a different route tomorrow due to a fallen tree.

As well as the regular participants, fund-raisers are due to tackle the course tomorrow in support of homelessness charity The Brick.
