Not sure what fruit this is but looks like cherries but it isn't as some visiting children found out! Also they are a choking hazard!! Please could it be cut back as one large thick branch has now started overhanging and now producing smaller branches that are dropping fruit in my garden which I'm continually trying to pick up. Not sure why this would be planted in a residential area as cars are also covered in them. Thank you
Thank you for your report, this is now being investigated. Information on our services and the timeframes we aim to respond in can be found: http://www.bromley.gov.uk/ fixservices
