Large dangerous branch hanging over public footpath

Reported via iOS in the Trees in public parks and open spaces category anonymously at 17:37, Monday 29 April 2024

Sent to Northumberland County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5913030.

There is a large loose branch with a pointed end balancing on another branch in a tree next to the public footpath next to the burn /bridge (first tree on the right going down the footpath to the E’s on Hartford green). If it’s windy it’s definitely going to fall and may easily land on a pedestrian. Please can this be removed safely please. I’m too small to pull it down and it’s likely to be heavy.
