Ice warning on Cuckoo Trail

Last week while walking to work along the Cuckoo Trail, where it forks right down a slope by Hailsham Community College, I slipped on black ice and badly broke my ankle both sides.

The people who stopped to help we’re a great comfort while I waited for the ambulance to arrive.

To avoid this happening to anyone else, can I make a plea for that treacherous part of the trail to be gritted or salted or at least have an ice warning sign?

I believe the county and district councils are responsible for the trail.
