Hedges overgrown

I previously reported this problem, which you rejected saying that it was the responsibility of adjacent land owners. Almost the entire length of Widnell Lane has vegetation overhanging the road. I walked down Widnell Lane and found that the adjacent land is mostly defined by fencing, which at some points is 5m from the roadway. I do not see how land owners can be held responsible for hedges that are outside their property. Please could you look again at the problem. Thank you.
