An overgrown pyrocanthus bush overhangs the pavement by over a meter. This bush has vicious spiky thorns up to 3 cm long at face level. We approached the occupants of the house some four weeks ago, but they say they can only ask the agents to contact the landlord. I today warned a partially sighted woman using that pavement: she had luckily avoided injury. Nothing has yet been done to prune the branches, although I have now found a spare red warning fence and put it round the bush.
A new enquiry has been raised for this issue.
