Dangerously overgrown neglected footpath by busy main road

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The narrow footpath alongside the road is AGAIN dangerously overgrown. There are stinging nettles taking up more than half of the narrow pavement and brambles/branches overhanging above. I have to cycle my children to school and we have to use this pathway, as the main road is too dangerous. My son was stung on the leg by a stinging nettle today and jumped into the road in shock - luckily there was not a car coming on this occasion but if there was it could have been very serious. You would not be able to fit a buggy or wheelchair down here without having to go onto the main road in places.
