There are thorny spiky branches hanging over the fence onto a busy public walkway / pavement. Also many people, when passing by this wired fence, can damage themselves or damage their belongings over the poorly maintained metal chicken-wire fence that is dangerously sticking out in places or leaning onto a public path. this is a hazard and needs to be sorted out urgently. This is particularly dangerous for anyone walking passed this area at night, it can cause serious injury.
