Reported this to Northampton Council 05.07.2020. After several inquiries, been informed that it has been referred to street doctor. Tree is overhanging, roots sticking up so pavement has lifted. i have seen elderly and children trip and fall. dangerous as this is opposite primary and nursery school. Somebody gas already taken photos. This has also caused damage to my front garden wall which is at an angle due to roots growing underneath. must have been happening for a while but more prominent this year.
