  • Debris has disappeared. Probably trashed by traffic and spread? Fuel can has either been tossed or knocked onto the verge and is still there with split and leaking pollution into the ground.

  • As of 11:30 am the fuel can is still on the verge on the corner where the reflector posts used to be alongside the fence that’s been hit breached and demolished in parts by vehicles leaving the road on the corner near the entrance to Barton house. Same side of the toad as the house. South side.

  • Petrol can (Green) has been struck by traffic, split and dashed onto the verge. Still there leaking fuel onto dry fir branches (felled by a car in the last accident on these bends) for over a month now.

  • After nearly a year the split fuel can is still clearly visible on the verge on the corner by Barton House. Just after where there used to be reflector posts that have now been systematically removed by the hedge cutting contractor. No we don't want to have to mow round those silly lifesaving safety reflector posts that warn of a bad bend. Do we?
