Liberal Democrat Councillor John McClurey has raised concerns about damage to the embankment between a popular footpath and the football pitch at Marley Hill. Damage has been caused by a heavy vehicle. The damage ground has now flooded.
"Residents first raised concerns with me earlier this week and we visited the site with officers from Gateshead Council to look at the damage," said Cllr McClurey.
"Whoever caused the damage left behind deep gullies which are now full of rainwater and mud. The smell from the stagnant water is not pleasant.
"We have asked officers to investigate the problem and see if there are ways to restore the damaged ground."
