Reported in the Obstruction (Not Vegetation) category anonymously at 12:28, Tuesday 21 January 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 3 minutes later. ref: 1952377.

The path leading to and from Overstone Primary School on Sywell Road, Overstone is not safe; caller has fallen down this pathway onto muddy area. It is too narrow for the number of people using this as the school has expanded. Needs to be widened to allow parents to drop off/pick up children on school runs. One side has bushes overhanging and the other is a muddy slide/verge.

The ashfelt is pulled up and uneven. Caller slipped on the muddy pathway and fell in the mud. Wants urgent action before somebody gets hurt.
