The Parish Council is aware that somebody has tried to block the cycle path by placing drawing pins on it. Whatever the motivation behind this, it is illegal to block or try to block a public right of way, which would include leaving dangerous hazards on the route. In addition there is a high risk of injury to an animal or child using the cycle path.
It would also be criminal damage and or assault to deliberately damage people’s property or injure them. Whoever is doing this, please stop, and anyone finding tacks, nails or similar please report to the police who have already opened a file on this.
