I was horrified by the state of the wire fence roughly opposite St Mary's Catholic Primary School.
There were at least three broken jagged rusted poles poking out of the ground, lots of wire onthe footpath that someone could easily trip on, and other wire poking out that someone could cut themself on or get entangled in.
I don't believe this should be on, or adjacent to, a footpath under any circumstances.
But the fact it's opposite a primary school makes it much worse.
I'm extremely disappointed in the parents, teachers, owners of the property, our council and the immediate neighbourhood for what, in my opinion, is their absolute negligence.
