Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3051773.

The tree is over grown out telephone line. By have repaired 3times and I’ve reported this back in March and was told it was going to be sorted within six months and it hasn’t. By have said they will not repair again unless the tree is trimmed back so it’s not hitting the line.
