The whole of Brackley has street gutters overflowing with weeds. Many are now so tall and developed they have flowers, including a buddleia, snapdragons and others. Whilst I realise lockdown has caused a delay in any remedial works, these weeds will shortly be blocking the drains. The town looks neglected apart from a few areas where some of the residents have removed the weeds themselves.
