18inch/48cm gap under railings dog/child railway access

About 50 yards/mtrs (51.471715, -2.580167, or, 51°28'18.2"N 2°34'48.6"W ) along the path (prow BCC/206/10)from Ashley hill end, a tree fell over, away from the path, but the tree base having engulfed little of the base of the railings tore the railings and concrete base up out of the ground, and leaning over, although railings almost undamaged there is an 18inch x 2ft gap underneath allowing (according to a dog walker her dog to pass through, and I think if I was 8 I would sneak under to explore) a loose piece of mesh is there at present having been torn off from cableties and disappearing then returning. Believe it would be best to re-dig a bigger hole to reconcrete the post, and re-align the other two and rails. If the original rusty disused post could be removed below path level and a bit of hardcore & tarmac could allow the path a little wider allowing people/cyclists/dogs to pass easieron a narrow path

  • Mesh vanished again, just after my report but a new taller piece has been secured over the gap, in my view a good temporary fix, but the railings are still up in the air and leaning over, which don't doesn't look good to me.
