Overgrown stinging nettles

Reported via desktop in the Weeds category anonymously at 10:15, Tuesday 19 October 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3071132.

Could the overgrown stinging nettles be cut back - the verge is a real eyesore - there’s a bench you can sit on at the junction but you cannot see it due to the overgrown vegetation. The vegetation also needs cutting back on the opposite side of the road (on Barton Road) - which has been reported. Could this be also done.
