I am writing about the dangers of the caged basketball court situated near the road on the park (Diss).

Having heightened the south side of the court this clearly has made no difference whatsoever.

Travelling along Park Road on a busy Friday afternoon, two weeks running we have had to stop or avoid a football rolling around the main road, followed by a youth trying to retrieve his ball.

Clearly this is an accident or worse waiting to happen.

I just cannot understand the decision to put a ball sport court that near to a busy main road, and even worse situate the goals on the south side nearest to the road.

Anyone with common sense can surely see that something needs to be done to stop an awful accident happening.
