  • On Wednesday the 8th of July at 19.50, I was travelling home on the A6 at Irthlingborough when a large branch from a tree fell on to my car. It damaged the vehicle/ smashed a headlight and has caused £350 worth of damage. I wish to make a claim against the council for the damage caused. The trees in the area are not being maintained and as a result this incident has occurred.
