Brambles overgrowing foootpath

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 21:32, Mon 25 July 2022 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3706468.

Vegetation is overgrown at numerous locations along the footpath on Brick Kiln Road. This is leading to the need to duck to miss hazardous things such as brambles (my hat was ripped off my head on one occasion as I misjudged it today - see photo). The footpath is only narrow in some places and it necessitates stepping out into the carriageway. This is a busy road and can potentially lead to the possibility of being hit by a vehicle.
