Tree root damage to drive - approaching the house

Reported via desktop in the Problem with tree roots category by Derek Gordon Ward at 12:29, Thursday 1 July 2021

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2832012.

The tree roots are causing damage to my drive of numbers 15 and 17 Humphys Street Peterborough PE2 9RH The driveway is cracking badly and the tree roots have made it very uneven. What is more concerning is that they are moving towards my/the houses. If this causes structural damage by drawing water and making the foundations overly dry it will cause huge expense for Peterborough City Council.
