Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 5 minutes later. ref: 1820794.

Footpath from Higham Road junction heading towards Finedon on A6 is very overgrown with very thorny bushes. Unable to walk safely on the path on many occasions and had to step fully into the very busy carriageway on the A6 several times in order to pass. Also got thorns stuck in my arm while trying to pass a bush when traffic was busy, causing me to bleed.
