Warning over fears stolen vintage signs worth £1,400 could be sold in Portsmouth

Have your say

A FOOTPATH looks set to be closed for the foreseeable future.

The path under the railway bridge in Emsworth has been shut for several months because of a collapsed wall. A study concluded it will cost £97,000 for a replacement wall.

A report by Havant Borough Council said: ‘It was agreed the council is prepared to facilitate removal of the existing wall and build a new wall provided that the costs of this work and future contingent liabilities are met and adopted by the adjacent householders whose land is offered support by the wall.’

The council has now written to householders.
