Broken branch hanging from birch tree

Reported via mobile in the Trees and woodland category anonymously at 17:13, Wed 10 February 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2538545.

Have reported before and just received message to say that the council had already checked (back in October) and that there were no broken branches. There still are- it is a significant break at the top of the birch. The same branch now points downwards and is in danger of snapping off completely. It overhangs the public path below and will fall onto that of and when it breaks off.
