Trees under threat of destruction by Sheffield City Council in the streets of Greenhill which local residents are protesting against Dave Dillner stands with some of the trees they feel should be saved

Heeley tree campaigner Dave Dilner was granted a High Court interim injunction in February, preventing Sheffield Council and its contractor Amey felling trees for three months.

Sheffield City Council, the defendant, and Amey, the interested party, who signed a £2.2billion contract with the city, are strongly contesting the case.

Ahead of the hearing in London tomorrow, campaigners have reopened the crowdfunding campaign in order to raise £10,000 to cover further legal fees.

Campaigners raised more than £7,500 in less than 24 hours to fund the initial legal bid – hitting headlines across the country with the show of people power.
