The Highways Agency has undertaken its own investigation into the cutting back of planting on the embankment, both with Braintree District Council, which owns the advertisement hoardings and with the Allam Group, the company which controls most of the advertisements on display. Inquiries made with both bodies have not yielded any information about who was responsible for the cutting back.The Highways Agency has passed to the police information relating to the incident.
