Vegetation encroaching over the footpath

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 21:16, Tuesday 13 April 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2669458.

The footpath on Corby road leaving Cottingham toward Corby has been narrowed to a dangerous point due to mud off the high verge and nettles / rambles . This is a narrow road and having to walk close to the edge of the road puts pedestrians at risk of being hit by van/lorry and bus wing mirrors when vehicles try to pass each other on the road . Also there is not enough room for people walking in opposite directions to pass safely with one person having to walk into the road to pass . As my wife and I experienced when we walked up town with our 1 year old grandson in a pushchair . We had to take the pushchair into the road due to another couple walking down to the village las had a small child in a pram . Either way the potential for an accident is very real .
