Unsafe council pavement works have been left exposed in Huddersfield town centre.

Some pedestrians have been forced to walk on the road of the still open Ramsden Street due to dangerous blown over safety barriers and uneven pavements.

The mess next to the town hall highlighted in our video was discovered by the Examiner on Saturday lunchtime.

The pavement is being upgraded by Kirklees Council as part of the introduction of new bus gates and cameras in the town centre.

In the footage, all but two orange barriers which were placed around a dug up stretch of pavement have fallen over, with several now in the road.

One has blocked the accessible but uneven stretch of still usable path way for wheelchair users and buggies.

Further down the street towards the Queensgate Market outside the former Santander Bank, the accessible footpath is uneven and covered in dirt caused by the repair work.

The council's website states that improvement works are scheduled to last until April.

Bus gate cameras are being installed at the junction with Albion Street and will monitor the vehicles using the road to access Ramsden Street.
