Poor catches, and closes fast - bad for horseriders

Reported via desktop in the Gate - Damaged/ Missing category by Hemington, Luddington and Thurning Parish Council at 14:31, Friday 2 June 2023

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 4623887.

This is bridlepath NK004. The wooden person gate has multiple catches, swings quickly shut, has a kick board and is in close proximity to a bridge. These factors make it very difficult to open and close whilst on horseback.
