Blind Corner made dangerous by the back garded Hedge on the corner - 2 doors north of ours at Sunnycot causes a big safety (of life) hazzard as cars come round this blind corner - often well above the 30mph limit. I have put up mirrors for us and our disabled neighbour but the hedge is a huge problem. It is now growing into the road. I understood that hedges had to be kept a distance from the road by law. It used to be well back I am told but they have let it grow and grow. There has already been one side-on collision in the past round this corner. We fear for our safety every day. Please advise the course of action to ensure our safety. Thanks Kevin M Thomson
