A trans memorial tree in Manchester's Sackville Gardens has been left 'irreparably damaged' after going up in flames during pride celebrations.

The National Trans Memorial, which is the first of its kind in the UK, caught fire on Sunday night (August 29) as revellers enjoyed the third night of pride.

The cause of the fire is not known, but National Transgender Charity Sparkle say it may have been caused by a lit cigarette that was left by the tree on Sunday evening.
