This depression on Canford lane goes all the way in front of the bus stops. It is about 2 feet away from the curb. Yesterday 10/08/2021 at approximately 11am my father was crossing the road to get to the bus stop. He tripped over this depression and fell into the curb. This resulted in him knocking himself out. An ambulance was called and he was taken to Southmead hospital. Unfortunately due to the fall he has incurred a small cerebral bleed. A younger gentleman who was crossing at the same time also stumbled but managed to steady himself. The day before a woman fell in the same spot and required an ambulance. This really needs to be addressed urgently before anyone else gets injured.
