  • The branch is still there blocking the footway. Just hope no person with sight problems tries walking into the road to get round it or falls into it.

  • This tree has not been moved. It has been a hazard for nearly 2 weeks. It is in the road and cars have driven into it. Current streetlighting makes the roads dark and the tree is not visible. Please remove as a matter of urgency.
