The fight for Sheffield’s trees has its roots in a £2bn private finance initiative (PFI) deal signed by the Labour-run council in 2012. The contractor Amey is tasked with maintaining the city’s 36,000 roadside trees as part of a road maintenance agreement.

The council has repeatedly refused demands from residents – including Clegg – to disclose an unredacted version of its contract with Amey.

Now the Guardian has learned that several of the city’s most senior councillors – including the council leader, Julie Dore – have not seen the unredacted contract despite publicly defending it.

So far I have read nothing that would be a surprise coming from any council.

I am surprised about the novel usage of the legislation.

Has it not been used before in this way?

Not really. There are a lot of police so statistically one of them is bound to read a law book sooner or later and actually understand what is said in it.

Environment Secretary Michael Gove has made an extraordinary intervention in the Sheffield tree-felling saga, writing to council leader Julie Dore and chief executive John Mothersole to demand an end to the controversial programme.

In a letter seen by The Yorkshire Post, Mr Gove warns “the destruction of thousands of mature trees from the Steel City will surely damage our children’s rightful inheritance” to an improved environment and highlights concerns about the “transparency in the decision-making process” around which trees are felled.

There was a policeman in my year on my university law course. I reckon he must have been 35 or so at the time. He went on to be Commissioner of the Met.

He was a more diligent student than me, so I think it likely that he read a few law books.
