Outside Age UK, 92 High Street, Burnham, Bucks. SL1 7JT

Reported via mobile in the Footpath / pavement problem category anonymously at 12:58, Wednesday 27 March 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5773221.

There is the remnants of an iron pole in the middle of the pavement. It has sharp edges and is a great hazard to pedestrians. Reported it to Age U.K because just outside their shop. They informed me that the cause was a vehicle driving the wrong way down the High Street and that this was officially notified to you over 12 months ago! Please deal with this as an Emergency as my brother, who is 70 years old, nearly tripped and am concerned that the next person may not be so lucky. Thank you for your attention.
