I found a bridleway blocked by barbed wire – what to do if you find an obstructed path

Yesterday, I encountered a single strand of green wire, strung across a right of way near Steventon, on the outskirts of Ludlow. I immediately reported this to Shropshire Council, which is responsible for ensuring that landowners maintain rights of way. I also filed a report with West Mercia Police. It is a criminal offence to block a right of way but I was more concerned that this was incredibly dangerous. Below, I give detail of this blockage and how you can report similar obstructions.
