Unmarked electirc fence

Reported via mobile in the Public Right of Way footpath category anonymously at 09:31, Monday 29 April 2024

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5910197.

I was walking on this very narrow public footpath and had cause to reach out and touch the fence to allow another walker come past, and was rewarded with a very painful electric shock. I have been using this footpath for some years now and have never had this issue before, so perhaps it's electrification is recent, but is is not marked as being so in any way which is alarming. I am reasonably fit and healthy so apart from a sore arm and a headache, I am unharmed, but it is a vey narrow footpath and electrifying the fence seems an unacceptable risk to walkers.
