No back on a bench in Hillcrest open space, near Ivy Avenue entrance

Reported via mobile in the Park safety issue category anonymously at 13:03, Mon 19 July 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later

Recently the back support of the bench has been broken completely off (it isn't loose by the bench). Not dangerous as such (apart from it being sharp where it was joined), but I'm sure the locals would appreciate it being fixed.
