Pot holes and no railing on Public Footpath.

Reported via desktop in the Pavement Defect category by Rich Lanham at 15:14, Sunday 24 January 2021

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

Last March I complained about the footpath being overgrown and blocked. This was cleared. Yesterday we went for our daily lockdown, locally as instructed, as the path is becoming overgrown again, my wife fell, spraining her ankle and grazing her knees. She’s mid 70’s and lucky she didn’t fall over the low wall which is un fenced and down into the Malago. At this point the river has been used as a dump for all manner of rubbish and the whole thing could have ended up much worse. The Council have let the whole are becoming a mess.
