Overgrown Tree and hedges overhanging and damaging my garage roof and blocking the public footpath

Reported in the Hedges / trees on rights of way category anonymously at 17:11, Thu 18 May 2017

Sent to Warwickshire County Council 3 minutes later

The tree and hedges/bushes at the side of my garage are so overgrown that they have damaged my garage roof which is now leaking in several places and I am worried that they are damaging my garage wall and floor via the extended roots of the tree. They are also partially blocking the public footpath opposite the entrance to the Ridgeway School and also partially covering the warning sign for drivers that there may be children crossing the road to and from school. I don't think the council has tended to these for more than 3 years although they do cut the grass around the bushes. Please can you tend to these urgently and trim everything back and if possible, cut the tree down as it will continue to cause damage to my garage.
