Hedge with evil hidden thorns is leaning over the path, could hurt a child badly and my dog got thorn in foot.

  • Very disappointed that despite my assurances to others that "FixMyStreet" was great and the problem would be attended to really propmtly - this has NOT been done - the hedge is settling in to its new location halfway across the path - ready to spike all small children and bare legs that get too close. The gap behind it caused by the new fence being erected and it pushed out of the way, is filling in nicely so it no longer looks like it was ever there. the cut off branches that were slung onto the grass verge have grown into the long grass and been mown over now so the thorns are now spread about nicely too.

  • Really need to add more pictures, the path is getting overgrown from above as well now. Really disappointed with the lack of any care from those we pay to look after the paths.
