Trees, bushes, weeds, thorns all encroaching across the path. Have now caught my arm on several occasions would be very dangerous to a child walking or in a push chair. Barely enough room to use pavement now needs to be cut back. This issue has been getting worse for the last 12 months

  • I have recently been cut on my face by overhanging trees and bushes across the footpath between Great Oakley and Morrisons Supermarket. I am not in the business of claiming compensation for the injury but would implore you to sort the problem before someone claims under Health and Safety Legislation
