Tree is breaking our fence

Reported in the Tree is considered to be causing damage category anonymously at 16:59, Wednesday 13 May 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2114933.

Tree on the other side of our fence is pushing against and breaking our fence. We wanted to have our fence replaced but not possible because of the tree.

Tree is also releasing a lot of sticky sap - destroying my garden furniture and all objects left outside - this also means i cannot hang clothes in garden - as they dry with a stickie residue on them /staining them

Thanks for your help and follow up Kind Regards
