Dangerous trees stainton road LN35BL.

Reported in the Overgrown tree/hedges category anonymously at 00:48, Tuesday 26 May 2020

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 371660.

Trees are over hanging road on Sunday 25th may 2020 a van broke a branch (see photo) off it almost hit my son who was cutting the lawn. This is a regular occurrence with double decker school buses and farm vehicles constantly using this narrow road. This is a danger to public and an accident waiting to happen. Branches have landed on our vehicles on numerous occasions but Luckily up to now no serious damage has been sustained. The van which broke branch off must of sustained damage judging by the noise and size of branch.
