Vegetation so overgrown the footpath is virtually impassable by pedestrians

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 16:41, Tue 22 October 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 4 minutes later. ref: 1815255.

Bushes towards the end of Swallow Close (meeting the corner of Blackbird Close) are incredibly thorny and have overgrown the path to such extent that it is only possible to walk single file on the path. It is incredibly difficult when trying to walk in that direction with small children to the new school and park facilities on the new estate. These bushes have been overgrowing for approx. 2 years, however this has now reached a point where even single file we are getting caught on the thorns.
