Sign has slipped - cut my sons head open

Reported via desktop in the Road Signage category by Peter Wise at 16:06, Sat 30 October 2021

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

My son walked into the corner of the metal sign which has slipped down and it cut his head. He is about 1.5m tall. The sign is very dangerous and presents an immediate safety issue. The walkway through is not wide and is a risk to anyone his height and above. Serious risk of head injuries or eye loss to others. Just outside Bakesmiths on Whiteladies Road.
