Thornbushes overgrown on path near water Tower

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 09:17, Fri 31 July 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2224472.

The bushes have big thorns on them and overgrown onto the path - which my son walks on and he is registered blind. It appears to be between 83 -97, not private land by the water tower.

  • This is bloody ridiculous can i ask what i and the local people pay council ta for when if we walk along a foot path we will get HURT by great big THORNS that are very big and vicious nothing has been done about this but the houses that have housing associations they have had theres done but the council havent done theres which is a five minute job. I have already cut them once this year and so has my husband please do what we pay you for and make our pavements clear so that the old frail and disabled do not get hurt or anyone walking in the dark who wont see them dosnt get caught on them.
