Hole in pavement surface due to tree root

Reported via desktop in the Road, Pavement and PROW Issues category anonymously at 10:27, Wednesday 12 January 2022

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

Outside No.80 Princes Plain. A tree root has pushed the pavement up so you have to go up-and-over it. Tarmac has been used previously to fix the problem but this has now broken down as can be seen in the photos and a hole has appeared which is growing day by day. I witnessed a man on a motorised wheelchair topple over while trying to pass this tree. Can this be made safe for pedestrians and wheelchair users please?
