Raised metalwork in pavement

Reported via desktop in the Slabs - Uneven / Damaged / Cracked category anonymously at 12:25, Sunday 28 February 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2576927.

The metalwork in the pavement between the Air Ambulance shop and Kempster's Butchers on Wellingborough Road, Northampton is a significant trip hazard. I tripped over it on Saturday 20th February 2021 resulting in a broken arm in several places and a dislocated elbow which required a four hour operation to insert metal plates and to reconstruct the bones/elbow joint.
