Safety signs erected at danger path

Warning signs have been erected at the beginning of a footpath after a member of the public slipped and fell whilst walking on it.

A short trail in the city of Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada that has existed as a public shortcut for 30 years has prompted action from safety officials, according to Kamloops Daily News.

Terry Pile, of the city's risk management and insurance department, told the news provider a local resident had informed the authorities she had had a fall and was concerned about the safety of the path.

"She had some concerns about the steepness of the slope, and the loose gravel.

"And she indicated that she slipped a couple of times. Fortunately, she didnÂ’t suffer any injuries," Mr Pile said.

Rather than completely close the trail, the city has opted to erect warning signs to make the risk clear to pedestrians. Currently temporary safety signs are in place but permanent warning signs will be erected soon.

Mr Pile urged pedestrians to stick to pavements and clearly marked trails.

Recently warning signs were erected at a lake in Manchester after algae was spotted on the water. ADNFCR-2754-ID-800006844-ADNFCR
