Uneven path, humped in middle, needs levelling

Reported in the Obstruction (Not Vegetation) category anonymously at 13:14, Tue 22 October 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 2 minutes later. ref: 1814865.

The raised tarmac on the path outside 48 Holcot close is causing damage underneath my new car (Mercedes) as it scrapes the bottom of the car every time I drive onto my private driveway. There is a gauge in the path from something under my car (see photo). This was not a problem with my previous cars as they have all been SUV's so sit higher off the ground but the Mercedes is a lower car (not modified) and there will eventually be a repair bill because of the damage being caused.
