Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 17:44, Wednesday 21 July 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2881215.

Travelling west along Boughton Fair Lane nearside wing mirror hit projecting hedge. Could not avoid because of vehicle travelling East meant I had to stay in West bound lane. Found NS Wing Mirror had been damaged, cracks in perspex lens indicator cover, paintwork on Wing Mirror also has scratches. The verges have been cut but the projecting hedge into the road has not been properly cut back to maintain road and vehicle safety.
