Sticky gunk all over pavements

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 6 minutes later

The road was partially resurface on 17th July 2019. But unfortunately the sticky gunk used for resurfacing was also spread on to the cobbled pavements, leaving a disgusting sticky mess which adheres to the shoes of pedestrians and gets carried on their feet. Splatters of the gunk have also ended up on the surrounding buildings, most notably contaminating door handles. Hard to believe that such work could be conducted without protecting the pavement and surrounding areas - restorative work to clean up the mess is now needed.
