Dangerous railings

Reported via desktop in the Railings, bollard, & post damage category anonymously at 20:14, Monday 24 April 2023

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 4481807.

The wooden posts holding the railings is completely rotten at the base and the railings are very unstable. This is opposite the Post Office in Compton Martin. Please repair urgently as this is a pathway coming straight onto the busy A368 main road and if somebody lean on it the whole stricture will collapse.
