2 trees next to 56 Fotheringhay Road overgrown

Reported via desktop in the Fallen Tree category anonymously at 09:50, Fri 4 November 2022 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3938188.

2 trees next to 56 Fotheringhay Road and next door overgrown, many leaves and debris are falling onto the rooves. The debris are blocking the drains and causing damp and water damage to the properties. They need cutting down to below the roof line as the landlord of 56 has had to have the drains unblocked at least 6 times now and it is always full of tree debris.
