Overhanging vegetation

Reported via Android in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 19:10, Thu 7 October 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3048772.

Bushes excessively overhanging footpath blocking half of it.

Yes, it might be the homeowners responsibility in this case but I would hope the council may have sufficient means (maps, addresses) to request they deal with it rather than just way their hands of it. I'm not going knocking on doors in a dark night trying to guess when I'll probably get punched for my efforts.
