Overgrown hedges/encroaching verges making road narrow

Reported in the Grass and Hedges category anonymously at 09:09, Friday 23 August 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

From "Camp Corner"(MOD Training Area) on Widnell Lane the hedges/trees are spreading into the road and causing it to be much narrower than is safe especially when larger vehicles are using the road. There have been two instances in the last month where damage has been caused to vehicles because there has been no option than to hit the hidden hard edge to avoid hitting the other vehicle. The hedges all along Widnell Lane until you reach the B4011 need attention . Please could you look into this , I am not sure whether the responsibility lies with the land owner or highways
