Vegetation/hedges overgrown onto pavement

Reported via mobile in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 09:59, Friday 18 June 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2800552.

The whole stretch of pavement between both zebra crossings has overgrown hedges/brambles/stinging nettles. Two people cannot walk safely along the pavement, meaning one has to walk in the road. My 4 year old has caught his face several times on stinging nettles and brambles when trying to walk on the pavement to get to preschool with me.
