It’s snow joke on icy pavements

SIR – Why is it that every year pedestrians in WGC run the risk of broken bones because the borough council – which is supposed to be encouraging pedestrians – does not ensure that ice covered pavements are gritted ?

Today, Saturday, December 19, there was a market outside the Howard Centre, therefore more shoppers than ever, and the pavement was an ice rink.

Two members of my family fell there in separate incidents. I wonder how many more people did?
