Possibly dangerous leaning tree.

Reported via desktop in the Trees and woodland category anonymously at 11:33, Fri 27 November 2020

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2407699.

A tree (probably ash) is leaning at an acute angle across Five Arches cycle path, approximately where indicated. It appears to be partially supported by trees on the opposite side. Since this is a very large tree I fear it could seriously injure somebody walking underneath should it, or its branches come down. I have been aware of this for some time believe somebody should take a look.
