Fallen tree blocking brook

Reported in the Trees category anonymously at 13:11, Sunday 16 February 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 4 minutes later

Tree fell in last week's storm. Path is now clear - thankyou. However the trunk is causing the brook to back up. Environment agency are also aware but no progress made. Land owner is not contactable as this particular section of bank was held as a ransom strip and therefore not tied to any of the adjoining properties.
