Steep steps have missing handrail

Reported via mobile in the Public footpath or cyclepath category anonymously at 14:05, Thu 7 January 2021

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2466076.

Steps leading from the West side of the Cock Lane underpass to the A15 carriageway bus stop have no guard or handrails at the sides. There is a metal central rail but the original wooden side rails were removed and never replaced. I have witnessed elderly people struggling with these steps. If an infirm person is clinging to the centre rail while using the steps and is being supported by a carer on the non railed side, the carer has no support or protection from falling sideways and possibly 4 metres down onto tarmac. Please investigate. I seem unable to send a picture.
