Back to all reports

The footpath which goes from Thurlby Road onto Dorton Avenue in Gainsborough is overgrown from the property who's garden backs onto the corner. It has large bramble and other foliage which overhangs their fence onto the path. It is particularly dangerous as the bramble is at head height. In the dark this could cause someone serious facial injury if they walked into it.
