Loose Connection in Historic Railings/ Former Rats' Nest!

Reported via desktop in the Railings, bollard, & post damage category anonymously at 12:15, Tuesday 28 September 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3029693.

Good Morning. Two issues on the ancient raised walkway on The Batch, Batheaston adjacent to No22. 1) The top rail is dislocated from an adjacent Post. Judging by the (relatively) recent tarmac patch from water contractor activity, this may have been caused by the post moving during excavation, causing a (sleeved) repair to disengage. 2) Photograph No2 is the location of a former rats' nest (under the covering stone one post along) which after BANES inspection some time ago was due to be filled in. Is this work still programmed? I would be grateful for any updates available on each issue.
