  • 20.50 Tuesday 22 October - there is a pallet of blocks in the road left there by City and Country earlier today. There are no lights or hazard signs to warn road users that it is there. In addition the barriers have been moved from the corner of Alfred Place / Guinea Street - these are supposed to protect the corner of the pavement but have been pushed aside.
