Five foot long 2 to 3 inches deep hole in footpath,

Reported via desktop in the Footpath / pavement problem category anonymously at 17:46, Monday 20 September 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

This damage to the footpath between 35 & 37 Chartridge Lane is a danger to pedestrians, especially with hundreds of schoolchildren walking past it daily. This hole has got far worse recently with car and lorries turning in this area since the school works have got busier over the last 4 months. The dropped curb is now above the pavement level and water coming down the road (not drawing down blocked gullies!) further worsens this hole.
