Dangerous Footbridge!

I have been out to look at the footbridge across Cobbins Brook at E174 GR 451 041. As you can see from the photo, a tree has fallen and jammed against the side, pushing one side of the footbridge up. Due to the slope and the wet weather, crossing the footbridge is very testing. I suggest that walk leaders do NOT to use the footbridge for a few months, while the problem is sorted, which could involve a replacement footbridge.
