Mud Bath spreading into pavements and being walked into school

Reported via mobile in the Footpath / pavement problem category anonymously at 08:56, Fri 4 December 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

As soon as it rains slightly the grass verges become muddy, wet and slippery from the amount of foot traffic from students. The mud is then walked into school and stains carpets and increases the need for cleaning. In the younger years children sit on the carpets. Every day at least one child slips and falls in the mud and is desperately upset. Pavements really should be widened.
