    The sizzling summer of 1976 caused permanent changes to British forests, new research suggests.

     

    Scientists found that the long dry spell that year - the UK's most intense drought between 1914 and 2006 - killed off many drought-sensitive beech trees.

     

    Growth of the trees is still restricted more than 30 years later, a study in the journal Functional Ecology said.
