Zoe Stewart and her daughter Felicity, two, were walking to nursery when the little girl caught her foot on the damaged pavement in Holgate, Pitsea, and fell forward onto the exposed metal edging of a drain cover, splitting her forehead open.Oooooh! What's that worth?
After the accident on Thursday, January 26 , Miss Stewart, who also has a son, Connor, eight, complained to Essex County Council, which is responsible for maintaining the pavements.
However, she has been left “absolutely furious” after receiving a letter from the council which stated that an inspector had visited the site but that “the defect was not considered to be dangerous at this time and was scheduled for a low priority repair.”*gasp* Run to the papers!

She said: “I’m really angry as I have lived round the corner from this for about five years and it’s always been like it.”Oh! And you were doing so well up until this!
