  • There is a trip hazard at the top of Barretts Grove (Stoke Newington Rd )end just alongside the former garage by the telecom box. When walking quickly early yesterday evening my foot caught the uneven paving caused by a rocking inspection cover and I fell forward hard on the pavement. I have smashed my glasses and badly cut the area under my right eyebrow (see photo). I had to go to hospital and had it cleaned, glued together and given a tetanus injection. It is quite painful and will probably scar. My vision is slightly blurred as my eye kept watering today. There are many pieces of uneven walking surfaces in this road. It needs levelling asap.
