Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 12:44, Monday 17 February 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 2 minutes later. ref: 2003672.

Thorny shrub encroaching beyond garden fence across most of footway. Reaching twigs are scratchy and catch clothing and, in the dark, my eye. Very unpleasant. The length of this garden has encroachment on the highway. It’s been present for months and now a problem especially this plant which is growing by the day. It’s the last house in Haweswater Road and encroachment between Haweswater and the public footpath.
