Overgrown nettles along A47 footpath makes walking/jogging difficult without getting stung on legs. I reported this as overgrown earlier this year. Please can the vegetation be maintained regularly as this footpath is well used by walkers and joggers

As mentioned above the footpath along the A47 from Glaston towards Uppingham is yet again becoming overgrown and nettles are causing a problem. I ran along the footpath this afternoon and I have stung my legs. This footpath is used regularly and as I Glaston resident it is important that the vegetarian is maintained. Thank you
