Collapsing pavement - now increasingly dangerous - outside 61 Friday Street. Children regularly tripping on uneven paving stones and water pooling in the dip after rain showers. This has resulted from work done by Thames Water (TW) previously. Reported repeatedly to TW who have indicated that fixing the collapsing pavement is not their responsibility but is down to the Local Authority. Concerned that the Council is at risk of being sued if pedestrians continue to trip and are injured.
