The fence at the top of the slip road / top end of back lane to No's 318 - 328 Dunston Road, has been damaged and there is now a huge hole big enough for children playing or pets / dogs to get through leading right on to the very busy slip road from the A1.

    As this is an all purpose trunk road all fences are the responsibility of the adjacent landowner. In this case the responsibility for this issue, on this road, is that of Gateshead Council.
