Overhanging trees

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 08:40, Wed 13 November 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 5 minutes later. ref: 1843867.

The trees and bushes at the roadside are overhanging and have damaged my truck on more than one occasion. I'm having to drive my lorry onto the opposite side of the road slightly, over the double white lines to avoid them. They have been like this for some time.
