Verge damaged by vehicles and path covered in mud

Reported via desktop in the Pavements/footpaths category anonymously at 19:53, Sat 21 November 2020

Sent to Hertfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Verge is being damaged, and footpath covered in mud, alongside eastern side of Shephall Way between junctions for Hydean Way and Foxfield.

Vehicle seems to be driving over the verge (no dropped kerb) multiple times and is causing ruts to start forming in the verge, and mud being transferred onto the footpath. Very slippery when wet.
