Tree roots exposed on bank leaving trees at risk of falling.

Reported via mobile in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 11:00, Sun 27 August 2023

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4931115.

Ref 4207932 In February, I reported a potential danger to vehicles and pedestrians from two trees whose roots have become exposed, due to erosion. Should one fall across the road, serious harm could come to road users.

I am told that the problem was fixed, but can see no evidence of this. See attached recent photos .
