Weeds in the gutter for a long stretch on B570

Reported via desktop in the Weeds category anonymously at 13:25, Fri 23 September 2022

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3843868.

B570 heading into Irchester from the A509 between the traveller site and past the entrance to Irchester Country Park is unlit and has a white line denoting the edge of the road. This line is becoming obscured by weeds growing in the gutter. During the summer they were quite tall but now they are dying off they will compost down, cover the line and make the road quite dangerous in the dark. It will also make next year's growth even bigger if not cleared.
