A large tree has fallen into the river

Reported via mobile in the Tree Requires Pruning category anonymously at 21:27, Saturday 24 February 2024

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5626492.

A large tree fell into the river last year behind our property at Riverside. We cut it back on our side as we much as we could as it was pushing on our fence. Because it was not removed last year it is still growing with more branches now pushing on our only fence between our garden and the river. I have a dog and two children should I he fence come down it could cause injury if not death to my dog or children.
