Ivy is encroaching onto the road (CV23 8TB) making vehicles swerve to miss it, and restricts view of pedestrians etc. by traffic. Also a few yards after, a low dead tree branch that has been hit numerous times by taller vehicles. This could fall into road and cause an accident. Ivy issue = 3 weeks, branch = 1-2 years and getting worse
