Toddler injured in fall down hole

This Is Wiltshire: Tasha Wiliams with  her son Kayden-Leigh Read Tasha Wiliams with her son Kayden-Leigh Read

MUM Tasha Williams is appalled that Swindon Council has not properly filled in a hole which her son got his leg stuck in last Wednesday.

Three-year-old Kayden-Leigh Read, who attends Eldene Pre-School, was running on the grass verge, in Shaftesbury Avenue, on the way home from the nursery, at 4pm, when his right leg fell into the hole of a removed road sign.

Tasha, 23, who lives in Radstock Avenue, said: “We were walking home from nursery, my son was playing with a friend and the next thing we knew his leg disappeared. “At first, given how loud he was screaming we thought he’d broken his leg or split it open. The hole was really rusty but thankfully we managed to get him out of it and the injury didn’t look as bad as we were expecting. “Kayden-Leigh didn’t want to walk on it so I carried him home to check him over.

“Luckily, it was just badly bruised rather than being broken. I got on to the council straight away as I didn’t want anyone else’s children falling into it and suffering an injury.”

Tasha rang the council’s highways team to report the incident at 4.20pm and was told that the hole would be filled within the hour but it wasn’t done until Friday, and she doesn’t think the job is up to scratch.

She said: “I was fuming that the hole was left there so long in the first place and it should have been filled in sooner. I thought it was going to be concreted over but instead they’ve just topped it up with mud which isn’t great.

“The mud still has rusty metal sticking out of it and is a danger to people and animals. .

“I think the council have just done a quick job to get it out of the way and I hope they do an improved one soon.”

Council spokesman Richard Freeman said: “There was a lockable box on a pole, which we believe was owned by the Post Office, in this location until recently. It seems to have been removed, although we weren’t aware of this. “We received a call to say that a child had fallen into a hole and bruised his leg, so we went out and made a temporary repair to make it safe and will return to do a more permanent fix.”

If it wasn't for the appalling council, young children would never fall over or hurt themselves in any way. At all.

The fact that a 3 year-old had a slight tumble in Swindon is a Health & Safety disaster that can only be put right by spending lots of other people's money on something or someone.

Or people could take a bit more responsibility and look where the fvck they are going. Too much nanny state for me, the cost of filling every hole and pothole and making Swindon "safe" would probably take very penny of our council tax and then we would moan like hell if they put that up massively. As much as I think this council are utterly useless, there are limits on what anyone can do and sometimes a bit of reality is needed.

I don't know why people are being mean to this young lady. Her child could have easily had a serious injury as a result of negligence by the Post Office contractors. The council have made a temporary repair and will return to do a proper repair. There is no mention of claiming compensation. It's a non-story I grant you, so just keep things in perspective.

All the people talking of compo/council house etc are the cynical ones. You are making these comments based on how she looks and her name, which should be completely irrelevant in this situation.

I admit the council would be too stretched to fill every hole and pot hole, but the fact is they were filling this one, so do a proper job! Houseonthehill, her son is 2 or 3 from the picture, they are going to miss things like this, if you have a child who even bumps there head on a table, I can assure you that you will not ask them to look where the f*ck they are going.

Yes this is a nanny state, but here I think the girl has a point, too often the council bodge jobs, whoever was given the job of filling the hole, should be made to do it properly at their expense, and fill a couple more as an apology for ripping off the council.

Maybe I'm missing the point but should a three year old be running on the grass verge on a fairly busy road like Shaftesbury Avenue anyway? At this age my children were always made to hold my hand while being anywhere near a road.
Also if the Post Office has removed the lockable box without informing the council it is hoped that the council claims compensation from the Post Office for any work undertaking to make the area safe and not at the expense of us council tax payers.

This really is a non story but then a gain the Adver would not have anything to print if it only printed real news. However, it is sad to see the usual bunch of commentators on this page bemoaning this young mum because of her looks, age, name of child. It does not appear that she is trying to claim compensation and she is right to point out that a hole on a verge is a danger if not for her child then maybe someone with partial sight etc. As some one else has already said if you don't have something nice to say please don't say anything at all. One final point why does anyone on here feel the need to say that this young woman must be a council tenant living on other peoples money? For crying out loud there are some bigots out there in Swindon.

thank you very much you are very kind im glad there there are some nice people out there that can see why i was worried and can see where i was coming from your right it shouldn't be about names age or looks it was about protecting other peoples kids and anyone for that matter from getting hurt aswell never was about compo im not interested in money at all that's not a concern of mine my son is my concern but really thank you to the people that defended me...


to everyone that has a problem...

. my name and my sons name have nothing to do with what happened neither does the way me an my son look have anything to do with what happened.. also yes my son has a dummy in his mouth so what?? its a comforter some kids have blankets some have soft toys other have dummy im pretty sure my son is not the only 3 year old to have a dummy and to state he only has his dummy in the mornings and at nights not that its got anything to do with anyone.. for the other people that say why my son was playing near a busy road my son was not playing near a busy road at all my son knows he is not aloud near roads without me an always walks next to me when we are walking along the path my son was holding my hand until we reached the grass area witch is when my son was on the grass area playing with his friend from nursery not at any point was he near a road do any of you see a road in picture? no.... also to the people that think im a money grabber and want compo for what happened your very wrong I am not interested in money at all my partner has a bloody good job and works full time so we do not need compo. my fear was that someone elses child or anyone for that matter could have fallen down that hole after my son did yes my son was lucky to end up with just a badly bruised leg from it but the next person to fall down it may not have been so lucky the only reason it went to the adver was because I rang the council 20 minutes after the accident happened and told them what had happened and they said they would put in for it to be filled within the next hour and when I took me son to nursery the next day this hole was still there it hadn't been filled nothing witch is when I rang the council again for them to tell me that the person I first spoke to the day it happened hadn't even log it I frankly don't care who the old box belonged to council or post office my concern was that nothing was being done and someone else was in danger of getting hurt im sorry if I put my sons health and safety first but as a parent that's what you do... and as for the person that expects a child to watch where they are stepping are you serious he is a 3 year old child at that age they look should be looking in front of them not at the floor for the people that say the adver should have added a photo of my sons bruised leg they was given a photo of the leg and they was also given a photo of the hole before it was filled with mud ive said to my partner that if this hole is not properly filled by next week i will ring the council and ask them for permission to fill it properly myself i am quite happy to do this if it prevents other accidents think your all just quick to judge me and my family when you clearly no nothing about us i only ever worry about the heath and safety of others and if that makes me a bad person then well im a bad person

I'm sure there are some good points somewhere in that rant, but the atrocious spelling, grammar and punctuation made me give up part way through.

Sorry

Sorry
Not even very basic punctuation like capital letters and full stops. I couldn't be bothered to read it either!

Reading your post made me assume you are old, stuck in yours ways and snide. The above is a very childish attempt at a backhanded comment.

Will you always ignore valid points through your own word snobbery? I hope you win the lottery but never claim your prize due to your inability to read past someone's over use of the exclamation mark.

So it's wrong to have a basic grasp of your own language?

That's fine don't read it then I never asked you to. No one is perfect not even you so what if I don't use full stops capital letters and other stuff. Doesn't make me any less of a person than anyone else
