Brambles out of control

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 20:20, Wednesday 3 April 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 4 minutes later. ref: 1593462.

This is my 2nd request for the vegetation at the side of my house (facing Dowthorpe Hill) to be permanently removed. It is currently cut back once a year by council workers. Thick brambles are rapidly growing into my garden and across the footpath and will soon cause serious damage to pedestrians, my children, animals and to my own plants if not removed.
