  • I believe that they have all come loose very recently and have sharp edges, they are hard to see from a distance if approaching the traffic lights and could cause a driver to swerve and hit a cyclist. They are also dangerous for cars as the edges are very sharp and could cause damage.

  • Plates outside francombe house on commercial road still loose and make a noise all day and night, this is about the 6th time Wessex water have been out, all they do is put loose tarmac around the edge, must be costing the council a fortune for this tacky job, so noisy.
