  • This isn't Anglian water, it's got to be damage to a footpath that the council will attend to. Please go out again before something bad happens.

  • Anglian water have confirmed to me that the fencing is owned by NNC and is your responsibility as a highway’s contractor to maintain it to be safe as set in The Highways Act.

  • Investigation: Ongoing - We are in discussions with North Northants Council as to the responsibility here. Anglian Water are also part of these.

  • This problem has been ongoing for several years and the council keeps blaming the Anglian Water authority whose problem it is not. The track should have been adopted by Northants in 2009 but owing to incompetent council employees it was not. So it seems they are passing the buck back and forth between Anglian Water and NNC. It will result in a child or an animal being injured or at worst swept away in the stream. Barriers put up have already been swept into the water and one ended up in the park recently. If there is no money to deal with this then NNC should be honest and say so instead of claiming it is some other organisation's problem. I am disgusted by the lack of action on this matter - at least put in secure barriers until such time as NNc can replace the edge of the track on their land.

  • Six clear working days have passed since I put this report on the Fix-my-street website (which is appallingly un-user-friendly) and there has been no response from the council. They appear not be communicating with anyone at the moment. It could be they have run out of money but honesty about this would go a long way towards helping in this situation.

  • Investigation: Completed (Reported to a third party) - Highways have looked into your concern and have found that Anglian Water and North Northamptonshire Council are currently in talk about what works can take place on this pathway. Please contact them directly for further information
