A dangerous obstruction has been errected in the public alleyway of Valley Road.

The public alleyway has been obstructed (seemingly without a licence) with scaffold. This is highly dangerous at night time as there is no way to see the obstruction.

The scaffold also lacks any safety measures, such as foam protective covers, or any night time lighting. A number of elderly residents in the area have collided thier mobility scooters into the scafold.
