A daughter has hit out at road bosses after her mother tripped on uneven pavement and suffered a broken nose and fractured elbow.

Laura Moreton, 30, complained to Bucks County Council after her mum Nadine lost her footing on her way back from Rivets Sports and Social Club on Whitehead Way, Aylesbury, after dark.

The grandmother was taking a shortcut along a path between Simpson Place and Harvey Road, to her home on Barnard Crescent when she tripped, causing her to fall into the fence.

She suffered a broken nose and a fractured elbow and was rushed to Stoke Mandeville Hospital by husband Alan after she was discovered injured in the alleyway by two Good Samaritans.

Laura, of Mount Pleasant, Aylesbury, said: “Her facial injuries are so bad that she can’t chew solid food, so I’ve bought her nutrional liquid drinks to build up her strength.”

The housing trust worker was told the path repair was not a priority and may take up to 28 days to be fixed.

Laura, who has a three-year-old daughter, said: “There has been some neglect, and they’re putting cost before the safety of the public.”

A spokesman from Bucks County Council said the path was due to be repaired this week.

Laura said: “It’s too little too late.”
