Between speck savers and leburys near the scaffold poles the block paving has sunk into the ground and has left a triping hazard that sticks up about 10 to 15 mm. Due to the type of paving that is their it is hard to notice till you trip on it. My wife tried on it and landed flat on her face sustaining enough injury to have a ambulance called and to be taken to the J R. Acording to the shop attendant in leadburys she was the second person to trip over in the same place

The triping hazard has been their for some time. And serval people have been caught out on it. Since it blends in to the paving blocks so well it hard to notice it and avoid the hazard before it's to late
