Missing safety rails and loose bricks. I have a 10 month old baby and have already fallen twice, it is a foot drop from the road to the pavement. The only other way to get to the pavement would be to walk along the road which is notorious for speeding traffic I've already had my arm clipped several times and including when I have been carrying the baby. My older son gets out of the vehicle on the pavement side and sprained his ankle after falling on the loose bricks, that was during the summer holidays so luckily he didn't have to take any time off school. The council removed one loose railing and just left a cone - there is metal sticking out and further loose bricks. The railing directly outside my house is loose and has caused me to fall whilst holding my child and I think soon one of us will have a more serious injury. When the council removed the railing up the road they asked if I would hold some loose bricks in my front yard they have now been there for months on end and I am sick of the sight of them I may just put them back where they were as I am fed up of being responsible for them and having to move them around when I am cleaning my front.
