Height of the style is restricting access.

Reported via desktop in the Stile-Damaged/Missing category by Ray Dyer (Parish footpath warden) at 13:31, Fri 9 September 2022

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3814207.

With the repair to the style completed, the height of the new style is causing issues for elderly and less mobile people, there has been reports of problems getting over the style from the field side due to the height of the steps. Could this be investigated please to see if the top step can be reduced to a more manageable height.
