Overgrown weeds and vegetation blocking footpath

Reported via mobile in the Weeds category anonymously at 15:30, Wed 14 July 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2864748.

The whole footpath on the Pevensy Close side of Springfirld road is almost completely overgrown with weeds and vegetation. There are also large weeds growing through cracks in the pavement. There is currently very little space to get a buggy or wheelchair through. My son and other children have stung themselves on the huge nettle which covers a lot of the path. The whole side needs cutting back.
