On the grass verge outside 100 Churchill Avenue, next to footpath

Reported via desktop in the Footpath / pavement problem category anonymously at 16:40, Tue 7 September 2021 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later

Today I witnessed the local authority mower/grass cutter get caught up on some metal whilst cutting the grass verge outside our house. This in turn has dislodged lumps of concrete. I don't where the metal came from (I think it must have been buried just under the surface) or how long it's been there, but it has now just been left there sticking out of the ground and towards the path along with the concrete rubble. Could this please be dealt with quickly - the path is in use by school children Mon to Fri and I'm concerned someone could get hurt. It has also created a hazard outside my driveway making access by car difficult. Many thanks.
