It is quite deep and cannot be seen due to being filled up with dirt, leaves and other detritus. It is on the pavement out side the parking area of 44 Bernwood Road. Opposite the junction of Isley road.

  • Hole was scraped out partially and a cone was placed. Cone has since gone missing and the hole is not filling up with litter. Still a trip hazard. What’s going on?

  • This issue has not been resolved, it is still a big dip in the middle of the pavement and is now filling up with rubbish. Cone is still missing and no further updates have been offered
