LATE one evening last January, I was walking home when I slipped on the snow and ice on an ungritted pavement at the top of my road and broke my leg in three places.
The ambulance crew also slipped when they came to rescue me. I spent a month in hospital and was off work for five months. Eleven months later I am still recovering.
You can imagine my reaction when, yet again, I look out at my road and see that it still remains ungritted. Perhaps the council is not aware of the dangers of snow and ice.
If this is the case, I thought it my duty to let them know. Their failure to remediate this issue could ruin somebody else's year.
There is not even an attempt to grit one side of the street; it is as if they have just forgotten that side streets actually exist.
