Dangerous ruts and potholes need to be fixed

My wife and I would like to thank the four very kind people, or was it five, who so kindly came to our assistance in Chichester on Thursday, May 3, when her wheelchair hit a rut in the centre of the street, as we crossed Newtown/East Pallant, throwing her on to the road.

Due to their immediate assistance and strength the situation was quickly resolved and more serious developments were avoided.

My wife suffered shock and some bruising and grazing to her knees, and it would not have been possible for me to get her back into her wheelchair on my own.

Very many thanks to you all who disappeared as quickly and quietly as you had arrived, and before I could thank you.

Perhaps the council can be persuaded to address the issue of dangerous ruts and potholes before a more serious accident occurs.
