Very narrow footpath

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category by Mat Jaggard at 11:13, Saturday 29 February 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 3 minutes later. ref: 2029996.

The footpath is very narrow due to gradual growth of the hedge. It has been trimmed but over the years has grown further and further towards the road. Now the footpath is so narrow that I'm afraid to take my children along it and certainly can't hold their hands affectively which is very dangerous given the speed that people come off the A428 in their cars.
