  • The padlocks for this sort of gate can't be very secure because the emergency service only carry a limited number of keys. They are more there to prevent children opening them and and to indicate that law abiding citizens should not open them. If someone is willing to break the law, they need to be caught red handed.

    This update is not from the council.
