Weeds growing in most grips causing flood risks

Reported in the Weeds category by Dave Gaster at 14:50, Tuesday 14 July 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2200080.

The verge has been cut from Steen Park to Farthinghoe showing most grips have 6cm plus blockage. In general the weed growth has a lot of silt and gravel washed in, leading to a solid blockage preventing free drainage. A small amount of litter has also been exposed from Brackley to Farthinghoe.
