Branch in hedge breaking car wing mirrors

Reported via desktop in the Hedge problem category anonymously at 09:39, Tuesday 5 October 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

There is a concealed knobbly branch in the hedge that is causing countless car wing mirrors to be snapped off. The hedge is on Nags Head Lane just before the turning into Sylvia Close. It looks like someone has trimmed the hedge back a bit meaning cars are driving closer in and not seeing this knobbly branch. A neighbour lost their wing mirror and the verge at Sylvia Close has become a wing mirror grave yard - I've just seen another man this morning pull over and retrieve his departed wing mirror.

Someone did put a yellow cloth on the branch to warn others but this has fallen off. Please can urgent action be taken.
