Overgrown weeds/trees making it impossible to use pathway

Sent to Kirklees Borough Council 1 minute later

Overgrown weeds, trees and plants make it impossible to use the path on the whole section of the road. This pathway is already borderline single track and on a road where drivers drive in excess of the 40mph speed limit. Children from the local schools use this pathway to walk home to upper batley along with runners and walkers who use it on a daily basis. This is an on going issue which the council seem to overlook due to this section of the road not having houses on. I cannot begin to imagine what it is like to walk down the path when the lights are turned off at 12am.

Please sort this out ASAP.
