Damaged and loose coping stones adjacent to steps

Reported in the Slabs - Uneven / Damaged / Cracked category anonymously at 22:56, Tue 22 October 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 4 minutes later. ref: 1815711.

The steps from Hinwick road to the alley way through to poplar place are bounded by pillars and low walls. The coping stones on the left are not attached and could easily be tipped up. My mother who is elderly, partially sighted nearly used them to support her as she walked up the steps. If she had leant on them, these would have been dislodged and hit her on the legs. These are quite large and either need reattaching or removing to avoid anyone else risking getting hurt.
