BS5837 - how to categorise a hazardous tree with a known bat roost in it?

Dear All,
I have a mature Beech with many Ganoderma fungal brackets around the base
and up the trunk, numerous old pruning wound cavities and other veteran
features, and an identified bat roost in it as well.

It is within a site requiring a BS5837, and yesterday shed a very large
limb across the road.

Question - would you class this as an A3 tree, or as a category U?

Many thanks as always,

regards
Bettina
