"I'm absolutely shocked to be writing this!

"Picked daughter up from pre school & always walk on the wall where railings are near village hall... to find Stanley knife blades sticking up out of the wall!

"How can somebody do this on purpose for anyone to stand on them!"

Emma Hayes

Police are asking any other instances to be reported to them.

"It appears that the person who found these removed them and then shared this information with us.

"The local team have been made aware.

"Any further instances, please report them to the police."
