Very tall tree causing problems to road

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 10:33, Wed 24 November 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3140930.

The tree is very tall and the root looks like it's coming up out of the ground which is very dangerous. I walked past one windy day and it was moving vigorously. It's only a matter of time before it falls into the road and cause and accident or even worse. It's a danger to walkers and vehicles. Thank you
