Bridge over Ock at bottom of Marlborough Lane has tipped to the side to such an angle that it is dangerous to cross. A small child in wet weather could slip and fall into the swollen brook/ river below. It is dangerous and needs realigning. Children often go down here on their own and could slip and drown. As a very used footpath bridge (approx 100 people cross this daily) it requires attention.

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council and Vale of White Horse District Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2371598.

The bridge crossing the Ock needs to be realigned, as it is tipping to one side. The angle is very dangerous and someone could slip and fall into the a River Ock and drown, especially now that the river is swollen due to heavy rainfall. A whirl pool exists at this point in the Ock so is doubly dangerous. As this bridge is used regularly (approx. 100 people cross it daily) this requires attention, as it is very dangerous. Thank you
