Extreme over grown vegetation

Reported via mobile in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 14:42, Fri 11 December 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2427767.

I have previously reported this issue and had been told it had been sorted. In my opinion it hasn’t. As in the photos the vegetation is so far over the footpath that the grass verge is having to be used for a footpath especially with social distancing it is becoming slippery and dangerous. The footpath is not wide enough for a wheelchair. The location is backing onto Aldwell close and between Balland way and Crossbrooks on wootton hope drive.
