Shrubs with dangerous spikes and thorns filling footpath

Reported via mobile in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 20:11, Wed 20 October 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3075062.

On BOTH sides of Pytchley Road after crossing railway bridge , heading towards the roundabout (all the way to the roundabout from railway bridge) and the industrial area, the footpaths are dangerous to use. I nearly lost an eye on a thorn in the evening because you can't see the branches (covered in thorns) encroaching on the paths. Or the brambles trying to trip you. Can't pass other pedestrian's coming the other way with my service dog without stepping into road and the traffic, as so much of the path has disappeared into the foliage... Otherside of the road is just as bad.
