Reported via desktop in the Street category anonymously at 21:11, Mon 10 July 2023

Sent to London Borough of Bexley 1 minute later. Report ref: 4769161.

The main root from the tree is now starting to push the concrete up along the bottom of the wall and gradually moving the wall as there is signs of it beginning to lean back into the garden. There are suckers from the root on the inside of the garden wall and further down at the bottom of the driveway.
