The shrubs and trees are overgrown and hanging over the wall

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 14:20, Mon 22 June 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2167318.

The overhanging vegetation is blocking access to the pavement, making it difficult for more than one person to walk along the pavement at one time. With social distancing this means pedestrians have to walk in the road but this pavement has a very large kerb (approx 1ft) so children, pushchairs and mobility vehicles are unable to do this
