Dangerous cracked pavement slab
Reported via desktop in the Pavement Defect (uneven surface / cracked paving slab) category anonymously at 19:05, Fri 23 July 2021
Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2886643.
Please see the images attached. The dangerous pavement slab is located at Stoke Newington High Street Garnham Street (Stop F), bus stop.
I tripped on it, went flying, landed on my laptop, winded myself, along with ripping my trousers (from Cos approx. £80+), severely bruised my knees and cut my hand when landing on the pavement.
There are no markings around the jagged slab, it is not loose, it sits firmly in place lifted, is clearly a trip hazard and I am hurt and upset after the incident. Moreover, it could have been a lot worse should someone elderly or disabled have the same experience.
