Overgrown tree is growing on power lines and obstructing visibility

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 19:55, Monday 6 July 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2188631.

This tree is very overgrown and has not been looked after. It is a protected tree by the council and is growing so big is it growing onto power lines above. The tree also reduces visibility for cars coming out of Well Spring Close. The tree is also over the pathway which many young parents have to walk their children on the toad (there has been a number of times when someone has nearly been hit because they are trying to avoid the tree.) Needs sorting before a big accident happens.
