Result, my email to Lancashire County Council ( LCC ) worked
2 very nicely suited managers from LCC turned up, doned their high viz jackets and hard hats ( PPE ) and inspected it 20190731_090358.jpg
They agreed that the contractors should have removed the other weed as well and got straight on the phone.
1 hour later the contractors turned up and pulled out the weed 20190801_134119.jpgbut had no cold tar to fill the hole.
That job has been booked on the system and another crew will turn up and fill the hole .............................. allegedly.
For the time it took for the contractors to arrive ( a full 1 hour ) the 2 managers sat in their car with the orange beacons flashing on the roof at the side of the offending weed.
