Footpath Around parsons Close recreation ground

Reported via Android in the Pavement and Cycle path category anonymously at 22:52, Wed 17 November 2021

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 363918.

During a walk pushing my 7 month old baby in her buggy I tripped quite badly and sprained by ankle causing pain and swelling. There was a large part of footpath missing creating a hole.

This happened on the footpath leading up towards Pulford lower school exiting the play park.

Fortunately after composing myself I was able to weight bare luckily, as in the middle of a park alone I'm not sure what I woukd have done with my baby otherwise.

I'm anxious that the same to happen to a more vulnerable person. Luckily I was able to walk on my foot with pain but someone older or vulnerable may not have.

I'm in agony and my ankle is swollen so I think it needs to be reported
