Sinn Féin Councillor Patricia Logue has contacted Derry City and Strabane District Council after a number of people who use the walkway complained about the surface and a number of dislodged stones.

She said: “I was contacted by a number of people concerned that some of the stones on the walkway have become dislodged and asking if repairs could be carried out there as speedily as possible to prevent any potential accidents.

“This is a very busy walkway used by hundreds of people each day. We are heading into the dark mornings and nights and at some sections of this walkway there is little or no lighting.
