Anonymous beat me to it. Thank you to them for reporting. I have attached two photos as well. This is the second time in 5 years that this has happened and the bollard has been hit by an incompetent driver. For media purposes, I am trying to work out if it was a hit and run and how much it will cost the council to replace? I am guessing because from research this happened well before Christmas and was not reported here, it was not firstly reported to the police. Is this right? Thank you, Samuel.
