School warning sign leaning into footpath and with rusted pole

Reported via desktop in the Damaged / Missing / Facing Wrong Way category anonymously at 15:12, Sun 27 June 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2821660.

As can be seen from the photos, this school warning sign has started to lean towards the footpath and the bottom of the pole is showing clear rust damage. We are worried that it could fall and injure a passing pedestrian as this is the footpath leading to our busy village school.
