Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 17:00, Tuesday 23 June 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2169509.

There is a very large ash tree located in the highway verge which has suddenly developed a deep split - you can see daylight through it. If the tree fell it would complexly block the road and if any road user was passing, they could be seriously injured or killed. Please arrange for someone to inspect ASAP
