There are a significant number of very large trees with heavy branches overhanging High Street in East Harptree which, if they blow down, could cause serious damage and possibly fatal injury. Would you please take whatever action is necessary as a matter some urgency to have the overhanging branches removed and the trees made safe. Will you please advise what action is being taken to deal with this very dangerous situation.
