Over grown weeds, nettles and brambles.

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category by Jayne Willsher at 10:43, Fri 9 August 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 2 minutes later. ref: 1725929.

The footpath has become so overgrown it’s getting impossible to use. Myself and my daughters got very cut and stung trying to use the footpath. Forced to use the road which is unsafe with 2 small children. The worst is the path that runs by the towcestarians rugby club. It is impassable also on a footpath that runs adjacent to the A43 behind the VW garage that leads to the Towcester road.
