I received a call from concerned residents in Bowfell Close Brookhurst who came home at tea time to find that some workmen had left for the day leaving a dangerous twenty foot drop into a water culvert open and unprotected.
I went to investigate and met a family with young children looking into it and shaking their heads in disbelief.
Some of he residents assumed this was left by council workers although the vehicles they used were hire vans, I believe that this is not the case.
I contacted Wirral Borough Council emergency control room and had a temporary barrier installed within the hour. (Big thank you to the guys who did this for me so quickly)
I will be investigating further as to who is responsible and what action will be taken.
