Large puddle and muddy surface

Reported via desktop in the Passage-Obstructed/Overgrown category anonymously at 12:38, Monday 17 May 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2731170.

I walked this route on 16 May to find a large puddle obstructing the path. Trying to get round it I slipped on the mud and would have fallen but was able to grab a fence post. It was by shear good luck that I did not cut my hand on the barbed wire. Fortunately I was helped by a passer by. This section of EM3 from the footbridge to the Sports Field is a hazard.
