Blackberry brambles blocking a footpath. Opposite the Carpenters Arms, High Street, Fiskerton Lincoln

Reported in the Overgrown tree/hedges category anonymously at 10:57, Sun 11 August 2019

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council 3 minutes later. Council ref: 354439.

The parish council has received several reports about Blackberry brambles which completely block the foot path and encroach into the carriageway. Its quite dangerous because they extend from ground level up to and above face height. A member of the public has done some cutting back but there is one place where it is particularly thick and needs proper pruning equipment and removal of the arisings.
