Very uneven pavement surface cause by tree roots distorting tarmac.

Reported via desktop in the Pavement Defect category anonymously at 12:56, Tue 28 September 2021

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

The pavement surface adjacent to the tree outside the entrance to 2 Kent Road (in Nottingham Road) has been pushed up by tree routes and has made walking treacherous, presenting a significant trip hazard. On 24/08/21, this caused me to trip and stumble forward, where I grabbed the Nottingham Road street sign to try and regain my balance. My right index finger jammed into the 'U' strut behind the sign, as I continued to fall, this resulted in the amputation of the finger from the top knuckle joint. It also caused damage to my left knee.
