Large dead branch over carriageway

Reported via mobile in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 06:17, Wednesday 15 June 2022

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3597325.

There is a large tree (there were two but the other blew over as it was rotten inside) with a very large dead branch overhanging the carriageway. I am concerned that this could snap and land on a vehicle travelling below. The tree is a large one and as I say it's "twin" was rotten inside before it fell. I am also concerned that this tree being the same age may have the same issue.
