Tree too close to house,roots breaking slabs

Reported in the Problem with tree roots category anonymously at 12:05, Mon 7 September 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2282317.

This tree is too close to house, branches overhanging over fence, roots going under slabs and breaking them, making uneven what is potential risk of fall (kids who lives in 108 Eyrescroft already had some falls and hurt themselves because of these roots) or even more serious trauma, also could damage house base as its goes under the house too. This tree also leans towards Eyrescroft primary school, so during high winds it its risk of it fallen on school either. please consider to remove this tree as no trimming would help with the roots.
