Damaged path and wall

Reported in the Slabs - Uneven / Damaged / Cracked category anonymously at 09:54, Tuesday 7 July 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2189156.

This is an ongoing problem which has been reported and sadly ignored previously. The trees roots are damaging the wall and the path behind making it very dangerous to walk on .Highways took down damaged steps but did not replace them so the only access to the road is via this path and as there are many elderly residents on the road this is an accident waiting to happen especially in winter when leaves from the tree cover the path making it impossible to see. Ideally this tree needs to be taken down and roots dug out.. it is also leaning further towards the houses and could potentially fall over in time
