Overgrown trees hanging over the alottment walls causing obstruction to School Crossing Patrol operative.

Reported in the Overgrown tree/hedges category anonymously at 13:41, Tue 11 August 2020

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 374763.

This overhang causes a problem for the Lollipop Man at the crossing for the National CofE School. The branches hang directly into where the lollipop man stands. He is quite tall. He will need to move forward and backward on this spot to comply with social distancing. I am the Road Safety Officer for this school crossing.
