Infestation of Brown Tail Moth Caterpillar

Reported via mobile in the Vegetation (grass/hedges/trees) (NH) category anonymously at 15:01, Sat 16 April 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3462904.

A number of bushes have an infestation of what I believe are Brown Tail Moth Caterpillar which are damaging the hawthorne and other bushes. They are within the carriageway verge, near the pond, but easily viewed from the footpath to the west of the A12.
