  • I have been cycling during the lock down to Wellingborough from Irchester and need to cycle along the main road now as the traffic has increased I am in danger as I need to cycle out from the overgrown trees and vegitarion and have had a number of near misses and drivers wVing to get in but this I cannot do, the contractors need to cut back trees and hedges at least a meter from the kerb as my handlebars need clearance for safety an urgent request to view please as I use this road daily now and cannot ride on the footpath due to it not being a cycleway.
