Footpath blocked by an Electric fence

Reported via desktop in the Passage-Obstructed/Overgrown category anonymously at 20:54, Mon 18 September 2023

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5007702.

When crossing footpath RA46 over the stile onto footpath RA4 the footpath should carry on diagonally across the field but when I tried to walk this route a couple of days ago I was unable to due to an electric fence being across the path. Also the stile is a bit rickety.
