Badly maintained footpath on The Grove has caused injury

Reported in the Slabs - Uneven / Damaged / Cracked category by David Aarons at 09:33, Thu 10 October 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 3 minutes later. ref: 1799411.

The footway on the west side of The Grove (Moulton) has been deteriorating for some time. On the evening of 8 Sept 2019, a neighbour was walking down the hill at approximately 7pm (in darkness) and lost her footing. This resulted in a fall and a broken wrist requiring emergency surgery. Would you please undertake emergency remedial work before something even more serious occurs. I am sure you realise that either this or any future incident could result in civil action against the council.
