Attempts to save old giant oak tree in Southgate

Tree surgeons are working to save one of London's oldest trees from dying.

The giant oak in Southgate was already 300 years old when when Henry VIII was King of England but now the tree has begun to subside and decay internally.

BBC London's Helen Drew spoke with senior arboricultural officer Andy Robinson, Councillor Chris Bond from Enfield Council and Chris Horner, from Friends of Minchenden Oak Garden.
