Tree touching over head cable/hanging near road

Reported via desktop in the Tree touching overhead cables category anonymously at 13:42, Tuesday 13 September 2022

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3820228.

This tree was trimmed slightly during COVID but it has grown far too much and is hanging over the footpath, touching overhead cables and making it impossible for me to cut the grass underneath now without risking injury. I worry that during the winter a branches will fall onto the B1162 as the branches are so close to the road and will cause an RTA.
