Residents in Waltham Abbey are being warned of the "dangerous" potholes left by removed security bollards.

Many are calling on the council to do more to improve the safety on the pavements as the divots are seen as a potential hazard for disabled residents around the town. There are fears that people using mobility scooters could be knocked over if they do not notice the oncoming hole.

Vernon Gunter, of Mason Close, Waltham Abbey, told Epping Forest News: "There's a major hole in Honey Lane, in the pavement, where a bollard had been knocked over. Someone took the bollard away and shoved a cone over the top, but in a couple of weeks, that had blown away."

Tracey Chapman, the county council's cabinet member for highways and transport, said that the fallen concrete bollard in Honey Lane was removed and the exposed hole was temporarily covered with a cone and scheduled for permanent repair.

Residents in Rhyl have also opposed the council's plan to install more bollards within the town stating that it would be bad for business.
