Sent to Vale of White Horse District Council less than a minute later

Broken fence on lindsay drive park, outside no 20. You've put up some netting on poles which older kids keep pushing down to shortcut. Two days ago a small child using the sensory walkway with a parent got through the bushes and ran into the dark park and was nearly hit by a reversing delivery lorry. This temporary repair has been in place for several months now and is wholly inadequate to keep children using the park safe
