Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3045369.

Tree requires cutting back and maintaining at a reduced height. Roots pushing up pathway and block paving within front garden area of 550 Wellingborough Road. This problem was reported in 2018 but no remedial action to tree has been taken - only poor tarmac repair to footpath which is now again, in terrible condition.
