Stile is in a dangerous condition, fence leaning away from person trying to cross it and stile steps not fixed

Reported in the Stile-Damaged/Missing category by Paul Kirby at 10:55, Fri 4 October 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways 5 minutes later. ref: 1792372.

The stile into the field which is sloping downhill is dangerous. The fence which forms part of the stile is leaning away from the user and the stile steps are not fixed. As you try to cross the stile, you cannot use the steps on the field side because the fence is shielding them. This means there is a large drop into the field. If you were leaving the field to reach the road, you would not be able to use the steps because the fence is shielding them.
