Dangerous as no vision at junction

Reported via Android in the Overgrown tree/hedges category anonymously at 09:13, Tue 11 August 2020

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 374744.

Not only is the hedge overgrown, totally obliterating vision towards Potterhanworth, there is a bushy sapling growing, which, even when the hedge was cut last year, blocked vision when pulling out of the junction. The photo was taken weeks ago, so it's now bigger & bushier. It is middle left on the photo, left edge, to the left of the tree. I asked for it to be chopped last year & only the hedge was done. Please can it be chopped at ground level, or it will be as bad in a few weeks. Thank you.
