Overgrown hedges covering footpath

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility category anonymously at 09:21, Fri 16 July 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2868749.

The hedges from number 133 Malcolm Drive onwards in the direction of the Weedon Road are now covering over half the footpath. Pedestrians and particularly people pushing children in buggies are being forced to walk in the road on a bend due to the reduced width of the footpath.
