THE HEDON BLOG has long extolled the virtues of using Fix My Street to report neighbourhood problems i.e. pot holes, cracked pavements, broken street lights, etc.
“On Sunday 22nd August there was excessive blood on the pavement from Lloyds Bank to above the Coop. I returned later a few hours later and no attempt had been made by anyone to clean this up. Although I appreciate that this was a Sunday, I do feel that the amount of blood on the pavement warranted someone from the Council to clean the pavement, even if it meant using an external company.”
It seems that there was an alleged assault outside a take-away early on Saturday night which involved a man being hit over the head!
Needless to say the East Riding Council ensured that the offending blood stain was removed within 24 hours of the report.
