Insecure and risk of damage

Reported in the Road Signage category anonymously at 08:57, Thursday 6 August 2020

Sent to Rutland County Council less than a minute later

The holes that this heavy sign are in are oversize and the sign has exceptional movement back and forward, it moves at least 2 inches and crashes against the wall. I fate wall were not there the wind would have this sign down I believe. Due to the amount of play in the holes the wind is rocking this sign and the holes may get bigger, in which case the sign is as risk of falling forward onto the road. There appears to be evidence of corrosion below ground level, this would weaken the sign posts more.
