Repairs are to be made to a number of loose paving stones in a Melton town centre street after reports of several pedestrians tripping and falling over them.
Leicestershire County Council, which maintains footpaths, said it was aware of issues in Sherrard Street and was planning to make the walkway areas safer.
One of the people who has tripped there is town resident Carolyn Seville, who is unhappy about the many uneven and loose pavements slabs.
She told the Melton Times: “The worst section seems to be around the Yorkshire Trading and Superdrug stores.
“My sister and I have both fallen there and one of the shopkeepers told me pedestrians are often falling in this area.
“I am concerned that a serious injury may occur before a permanent solution to the problem can be found.”
County Hall has responded with a spokesperson commenting: “We would like to assure people that this street is inspected monthly by council officers and a number of repairs are planned.”
Residents are advised to go online at www.leicestershire.gov.uk/roads-and-travel/road-maintenance/report-a-road-problem to report any concerns they have about the condition of footpath paving slabs in the Melton borough.
