The pavement along Merton Street outside the Old Bank Hotel as far as the corner is in very poor condition. I have fallen on the last 2 times I have walked along it, tripping up on uneven flagstones. The first time was about 6 weeks ago and I had not realised what poor condition the pavement was in and tripped about half way along. I came down quite hard on my arthritic right knee which swelled quite badly which made walking painful for the next week. The next time, last Tuesday, I paid attention to the pavement for most of the way but relaxed near to the corner and tripped again, fortunately this time without damaging my knees very much.
Thank you for your enquiry. This issue has been passed onto the relevant team for investigation.
