Rusted metal pole besides footpath.

Reported via mobile in the Obstruction (Not Vegetation) category anonymously at 20:55, Tuesday 26 October 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3086597.

These posts are besides the footpath at the road crossing on Tolgate Way, at the junction with weedon road. My 3 year old son was walking past this post and tripped and cut his head on the open edge, resultig in a trip to a&e. There does not seem to be a reason for these posts to be there, it seems as though signage has been cut down and the posts remain with rough edges.
