Overgrown hedges

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 14:30, Tue 18 February 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways 5 minutes later. ref: 2006382.

I would like to report a dangerous overgrowth of hedges between Sudborough and Brigstock. This stretch of road northbound on the A6116 is extremely treacherous and encouraging cyclists to travel further into the road closer to oncoming traffic. I have been onto a few websites to report the issue but Northamptonshire reporting site say it is not their responsibility. I am hoping this can be rectified swiftly to prevent any accidents or near misses on this road.
