Trees outside 76/78 Henderson Street are lifting the paving slabs, the ones directly outside these 2 properties have been ignored by the council on numerous occasions due to one of them being a Ductile water main, the slabs need lifting and the roots need cutting back and the slabs replaced, plonking spoonful of tarmac down doesn't work as can been seen by the other patch work by the 2 trees nearby, this is now becoming a trip hazard to anyone who isn't familiar wit the area and to people walking down this street after sunset, might be worth thinking about removing the trees as they are becoming too big for their spot.
