Unsafe Gate on bridle way

Reported via mobile in the Gate - Damaged/ Missing category anonymously at 18:09, Sun 8 August 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2922478.

The gate from the bridleway onto knock lane is unsafe. The Gate is wedged half open with protruding latches. It isn’t wide enough for horses and the latch is easily caught on horse and rider. I got caught on the gate whilst on a small horse, which could have caused a serious accident very easily. Luckily I escaped with just a bruised leg. The Gate is used by a lot of horse riders in the local area.
