Tree roots lifting pavement and damaging garden

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 20:21, Monday 3 August 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2229371.

Tree roots are coming up through the surface and damaging footpaths (Opposite loatlands primary school) and Coming Up though Grass in our garden heading for our house. The tree roots have been like this since we moved in (October 2019) but are moving towards our house and we obviously do not want them getting near the foundations. So we would like to see what can be done
