Metal fence broken on Eynsford Rec leaving sharp metal exposed

Reported via mobile in the Parks and Greenspace category by Ross Beaumont at 18:20, Saturday 8 January 2022

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

The fence running adjacent to the play park and the football pitches is broken and hanging off in the middle. It has sharp edges and tangled wire and metalwork. Today a kid ran over to grab a football while training there and got caught in the fencing hurting his leg. The land is used for youth football and as such should be repaired before somebody hurts themselves. The area is also used by walkers and dog walkers and has the potential to cause serious harm.

  • It's good that the fence had been tidied up but there are still sharp bits of metal protruding, it would be good to get a permanent fix or even removal.
