Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 4 minutes later. ref: 1727956.

Significantly overgrown bushes by side of road. It’s a very Narrow part of road which is a tight squeeze at the best of times when vehicles are passing each other. Thorns/think branches sticking out which have now scratched the passenger side of my car. Please can this be sorted ASAP so that it does not happen to me again/more cars...thank you! The lanes at the top of great houghton village also need looking at as bushes are overgrown there too!
