THE owners of a family-owned children’s nursery have been ordered to pay £24,500 after they cut down nine ancient and “irreplaceable” trees worth nearly £400,000.

Hove Crown Court was told the owners of Bunny Run Childcare Centre in The Drive, Hailsham, had the trees cut down in May 2018 because they believed they were causing a danger to children and parents attending the nursery.
