Large cracks in pavement caused by growing tree roots

Reported via mobile in the Pavement Defect category anonymously at 11:10, Tue 23 February 2021

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 2566133.

There’s large sporadic roots bringing up the pavement on the side pathway next to 34 Leaholme gardens. Not only is this a danger to small children but the roots look to be headed underneath the house itself which could cause a future subsidence problem. The main crack is large but the tree has actually cracked the entire pathway.
