Overhanging bushes and branches

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 09:37, Tue 22 August 2023 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4915462.

Both sides of Butchers lane are seriously and dangerously restricted due to overgrown bushes, some over the wall from the property (Dairy Farm) on the South side of the road. This is a regular pedestrian route to the primary school. When traffic is using the road, there is no room for pedestrians to get out of the way, especially when it is agricultural vehicles. It is exacerbated as there are many stinging nettles and brambles that cause scratches and stings.. There is a high risk of an accident / injury.
