Dip on footpath after repair causing mud to gather and causing trip hazard

Reported via desktop in the Trip hazard/uneven surface category by Cllr Jackie Brockway at 17:50, Fri 28 May 2021

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 397674.

The pavement outside LN2 2RH on Vicarage Lane in Nettleham has previously had a trench repair done, which appears to have caused the surface to sink. As a result of this, mud washes down into this dip during wet weather and people have slipped. Elderly people have been seen having to walk on the road to avoid this dangerous surface and one elderly resident has to go out and gather up buckets of mud from the surface to make itself for himself and other residents. The quantity of slippery mud can be quite surprising and, because of the dip, it can’t wash away as it used to and is building up on the pavement. Can a repair be done to make this safe, please?
