Vehicle has been stationary/abandoned on this road for over 18months

Sent to Royal Borough of Greenwich less than a minute later

This Vehicle has been abandoned and stationary on the road for over 18 months now, I reported this back in march 2022 and nothing has been done since. The vehicle is in poor condition with bad rusting, peeling paintwork and no exhaust pipe. It is unsightly and obviously has been abandoned we have a well kept road by all the neighbors and this is very upsetting, I have checked the DVLA and it is now not taxed and does not have a valid MOT. Myself and neighbors would much appreciate if you could do something about this. Many thanks
