A huge rotten branch has fallen from a tree

Reported in the Fallen branch category anonymously at 11:09, Tuesday 4 August 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2230009.

Luckily the tent dwellers at this location last week had moved on before the tree shed its branch. i am concerned as another large branch has fallen today in Ravensthorpe narrowly missing my niece. Could you advise if the trees in Peterborough's green spaces are being inspected on a regular basis? For me to personally know about two in a week is pretty scary.
