Bushes are overgrown and taking over the footpath.

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2337158.

Bushes are overgrown and taking over the footpath. This is creating a dangerous issue with social distances, as dog walkers and people with pushchairs are having to step into the road to avoid people coming the over way on the path. The path is in places as half the width it should have.
