Thanks to Fergal Spelman who contributed this photo of the railings at the junction of Halstow Road and Ormiston Road. He explains:
The photo shows a railing damaged when a car slid into it during the snow a month ago. A number of cars coming down the hill (over the railway bridge) just went straight on when the drivers braked and into this railing. Despite it being close to Halstow School and a very busy pedestrian area, the council has so far only managed to place bollards to mark it but done nothing to repair the damage and make the footpath safe again.
