Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

After clearing out newly purchased garage situated in a block at the bottom of Garston Lane Wantage, large cracking to walls and concrete floor was seen. Roots are seen clearly growing up through the cracks. There is also cracking on adjoining wall with next garage. These roots are coming from a row of large shrubs sited on Seesen Way/Grove Street. We need these shrubs removed to allow us to carry out necessary repairs to our garage before it gets to late. many thanks.
