Tripping hazard - Barrier post ground bracket near to Fraser Close bungalows.

Reported via mobile in the Obstruction (Not Vegetation) category anonymously at 15:57, Mon 18 October 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3069905.

The post has been missing for a number of weeks which has left a ground-mounted bracket that is a danger to the elderly residents - especially during the dark hours as it is a tripping hazard. On Thursday 14th October (just after 8pm) my mother tripped over the bracket and has sustained a fracture to the upper arm as well as hand, knee and facial cuts. This needs to be resolved as a matter of urgency.
