Dangerous metal handrail a threat to children's heads / faces.

Reported via desktop in the Obstruction (Not Vegetation) category anonymously at 18:53, Friday 22 January 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2496084.

The top of a handrail up public steps to the footpath extends unnecessarily towards the footpath at head height for smaller children. It threatens to damage childrens' heads / faces when they are running or cycling on the footpath ( there have already been accidents).

Please can the rail above the upper support post be removed and capped off asap?

Many thanks
