Overgrown footpath which is not maintained

Reported via mobile in the Pavement/footpath issue category anonymously at 15:51, Saturday 3 July 2021

Sent to Highways England less than a minute later

This footpath running along the A46 between Beckford and the turning to Dumbleton has not been maintained properly for years. It is so badly overgrown that it's a dangerous hazard to walkers and cyclists who have to use this path on order to mot walk/ride along the main road. In parts there is about a 30cm gap. Reported before but no one has done anything about it. Disgraceful.
