Wooden sleepers displaced into the ditch on the railway side of the fence/stile

Reported via desktop in the Bridge-Damaged/ Missing category anonymously at 08:24, Saturday 17 October 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2344655.

Wooden sleepers across a relatively deep ditch have moved and are now lying in the ditch - probably moved by flood water earlier this month (meadows were flooded so footpath was inaccessible for several weeks). Location is beside the recently repaired stile on the railway side of the fence. It is a well used right of way so please arrange repair asap.
