A fallen tree is still partly blocking the southbound lane of Lower Road (abeam Claydon End). It is extremely dangerous and I have witnessed three near miss head on collisions just this week as it is difficult to spot until very late. It has been there so long now that it is even more disguised due to fallen leaves and branches and furthermore the road is unlit. It is only a matter of time before the fallen tree causes a serious head on collision.
This has been passed to our maintenance team who will carry out an assessment of the tree and provide an update within 28 days.
