Footpath overgrown

Reported via desktop in the Weeds category anonymously at 14:52, Wednesday 10 July 2024

Sent to West Northamptonshire Council less than a minute later. ref: 6214040.

The footpath between Brixworth and Station Cottages is very overgrown and is difficult to walk down. Have seen people walking in the road in places due to it being overgrown which is dangerous on a 40mph stretch. This section wasn't cut when the verges were mowed and the vegetation is getting worse.
