Broken support post and unsteady stile

Reported via desktop in the Stile-Damaged/Missing category by Richard Bunce at 16:54, Fri 22 October 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3078889.

The support post appears sound but comes free at the base when you put weight on it. The stile step itself is loose. Taken together these failings create a health and safety hazard.

  • This has now been reported so many times by me and other users, it seems that no one is taking it seriously. I will ask for intervention by parish council at next opportunity as members o& the public are not being listened to.

  • Post and fence still very very unstable. Luckily was with friends so we held onto the post and each other, but could become dangerous, especially with bad weather

  • Many months on since the work was allegedly commissioned and still no action. Stile has now completely collapsed and it is unsafe to try to use. It is now approaching a year since I first reported this problem and would be grateful if the work could be completed without further delay.
