Tree roots causing a problem under pathway into my drive

Reported via desktop in the Slabs - Uneven / Damaged / Cracked category anonymously at 13:54, Tuesday 23 March 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2628524.

The tree in question is on a grass verge outside my house. Recently i have began getting concerned as the roots to this tree are lifting the pathway causing a trip hazard and they have now started coming up underneath our drive. This problem was made more clear over the weekend when we were digging out a plant border and had to cut away large roots on our property. This is going to cause a real concern and prevent us from organising work to begin on our drive which we had planned for in the next few weeks. Please can someone come out and take a look at the situation. Many Thanks
