Tree surgeons/workmen were at this very location on the 22nd (or there abouts) and were trimming all the other bushes and trees in this area (including ones at the traffic lights on Mains Hill just down the main road), but these were left. The workmen were even parked directly next to this location so would have seen them.
The branches that are overhanging the railings have already been broken by somebody passing by as before they stretched all the way over to the wall at one point.
The overhanging branches close the sign a few feet further down are about four feet from the ground. This is at the top of the slope that leads down the footpath just away from the road.
