Thorny bushes growing over pavement

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 2 minutes later

Bushes outside the school on Wroslyn Rd near the corner with Oakland Close are growing over the pavement and are reducing the passable width of pavement substantially, particularly when car doors are open. They are mainly wild rosebushes, and I have already cut my hand on the thorns. The pavement is used by many children who are likely to get the long, thorny branches caught on themselves (including faces) and could be scratched or cut, particularly as the plants grow over the next few months.
