Salt box concern

A LARGE yellow box has appeared across the road in Leverington blocking the pavement.

I was told it was to be filled with salt and when the road was icy, we had to get the salt from the box and shovel it on to the road.

We are nearly all pensioners on this road and some are infirm so could someone answer these questions:

• Have health and safety been notified?

• Why can’t people on community service spread the salt?

• Who was the idiot who thought it up?
