A PUBLIC footpath has been closed today (Friday), due to a dangerous fallen tree.

The B54 footpath between the Main Road at Alverstone and the cycle track has been closed while the tree is removed.

The Isle of Wight Council said the path would be reopened once the work had been completed.

In the meantime, the nearby cycle track can be used instead.
