Blocked gateways

Reported in the Passage-Obstructed/Overgrown category anonymously at 09:24, Fri 1 November 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 2 minutes later. ref: 1827413.

There is a gate across path VC9 tied shut using another broken gate to secure it. Too wobbly to climb over so I tried the other side of the hedge. At the end of this, near to the Newton Bromswold boundary, is another gate tied up with part of another broken gate so cannot access the path at all.
