Tree roots causing injury after tripping over

Reported via mobile in the Parks and Greenspace category anonymously at 17:32, Wed 13 October 2021

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

There is a long raised tree root that has lifted the tarmac on the path at the Hayes Lane end of Norman park. I witnessed an older gentleman trip over the tree root this morning and he cut his face, hands and both knees. This area needs levelling off as soon as possible. The second photo shows the location by the bottom locked gate.
