Parking verge

Reported via mobile in the Kerb damage / issue category anonymously at 16:28, Sun 14 November 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

There is an old rotten sharp and very dangerous metal post base sticking out of the parking area. This was removed some time ago but the remains were just left after being cut away. The edges are very sharp and ripped a huge hole in the side of my tyre when parking here. I was stranded with my partner on a Sunday and had to spend large sums of cash on getting home along with a replacement tyre. I will be seeking compensation to cover the cost of travel and damages to my vehicle. This needs repairing immediately as not only does this pose a threat to any vehicle parked here but a dangerous trip hazard to any pedestrians who could be seriously hurt. I have many more photos please advise me where I can send them
