Cherry picker fails in heavy winds

Cherry pickerWaltham High Street was cut off for most of Saturday as workmen used a £2,000-a-day mobile inspection platform – known as a ‘cherry-picker’ – to try and get close enough to wrap protective canvas bands around the the cracked spire.

Unfortunately the high winds meant that it was only possible to take photographs. A frustrating day for everyone – except the press photographers who were able to take some great aerial shots.

We’ll try and get hold of some of the photos to post on this website.
