The trees are overhanging the pavement.

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 16:30, Friday 16 August 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 5 minutes later. ref: 1734654.

The trees belonging to the Grange Inn are overhanging the pavement on Saxon Avenue. They are dangerous especially when it is windy as I have nearly been whacked in the face by a branch. They are pretty large branches. People are having to bend double to get under them or walk on the road, which is also dangerous. They need serious attention. I reported to the Council via an email on 22 July, but nothing has been done about it. Please could they be cut back as soon as possible.
