Overgrown bushes quite dangerous for children

Reported in the Obstruction (Not Vegetation) category anonymously at 09:56, Wednesday 1 July 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2180620.

The bushes by the side of number 6 have now fallen and blocking the path, children have to walk on the road where cars come round the corner at a speed. My 5yr daughter has had 2 cars come quite close to her. This was reported last year but still nothing has been done, all the bushes are away from the fence and the path can’t be walked on.
