Large roots causing danger to pavement and driveway

Reported via mobile in the Street category anonymously at 16:57, Sat 7 August 2021

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 2920853.

The tree has large roots which has caused the driveway and pavement to lift. The pavement has caused an elderly neighbour to fall and end up in hospital. It has dangerously lifted it. It is also on a direct route to a primary school where many other people trip over it.

Also, it has caused a problem to the driveway opposite the tree as it has lifted that and there is danger it could cause problems to the foundation of the house too.
