Dangerous dip/pothole in pavement

Reported via desktop in the Footpath / pavement problem category anonymously at 20:08, Tuesday 26 January 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Directly outside 22 Fenny Road, opposite the bus stop, there is a big dip in the pavement which is generally always filled with water during the winter months. So, pedestrians either risk getting wet and worse twisting their ankles if they're not looking at the ground when walking. Or, they have to walk on the grass verge which is what the majority of people do and that is now becoming very muddy.

Highways are doing some resurfacing repairs in our village from 5th February and I wonder if they might be able to do this small repair job whilst there. The elderly in our village would be particularly grateful. Many thanks
