Reported via desktop in the Grass and Hedges category anonymously at 13:10, Sunday 2 October 2022

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

This entire hedgerow is growing over the pathway with Blackberry branches covered in thorns These are catching on clothing and injuring pedestrians trying to walk down this path. Children are especially vulnerable. Many children have been injured already. This has been like this ever since we moved in 3.5 years ago.

  • Further to the above a small boy was today injured when a branch from this hedgerow went into his face causing his eye to be impaled and bleed I have seen many others injured by this out of control hedgerow and urgent action should be taken to remove the danger! This boy was taken to Oaktree H/C
