Several paving slabs uneven due to tree roots

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2410158.

On ragsdale walk there are several paving slabs that have become uneven over the past 4 years because of the tree roots from the two large trees outside my home, the slabs are now a trip hazard and both my daughter and son have now tripped over these and hurt them selves, I am disabled and there are several disabled / elderly people living on this street and it won't be long before one of us trips on these and seriously hurts themselves, before I injured my back I relayed the slabs in my front garden due to them being uneven and the roots from the trees were extremely thick and I wouldn't be surprised if they are under my house aswell. The paving slabs definitely need re laying properly but unless something is done about the two trees this is going to be a continuous problem that is going to come up every few years.
