6 inch stump

Reported via desktop in the Problem with tree stumps category anonymously at 11:40, Sat 14 November 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2386977.

A couple of months ago the tree outside our house was removed as it was dying, however the stump was left in the ground about 6 inches high, we have no issue with it but two people how now tripped over it and it is a health and safety hazard, last night a takeaway driver tripped over it and he was covered in mud and wasn't best pleased with us. But we did explain it wasn't out tree and we didn't take it down. Could we ask to have the stump removed please before someone seriously hurts themselves because i can see it happening if two people have tripped over it in less than 3 months.
