Roots growing into my garden

Reported via desktop in the Problem with tree roots category anonymously at 13:54, Wednesday 29 September 2021

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3032167.

The large roots from the council trees on Coverdale Walk have extended down my garden, protruding from and raising the lawn the and raising the paving slabs next to my raised pond. I am certain they are growing under my raised fish pond judging by the uneven water level and the direction the roots are taking. The end of the pond is approx. 7 feet from the back wall of my house. I have complained about these trees on several occasions and a neighbour and myself organised a petition a few years ago which we sent to our MP. I have taken photos but have no idea how to upload them onto this report.
