Blocked public rights of way

Apologies for posting in general, we don’t have a UK specific community (other than a mailing list and I didn’t want to spam that).

Thought some may find this BBC News article about the sheer number of blocked public rights of way in England and Wales interesting (or depressing!): Public rights of way blocked in 32,000 places - BBC News

At least 32,000 instances of blocked PRoWs (and they’re just the reported ones from local authorities that responded to the BBC.)

I wondered how common it was for OSM mappers to find blocked paths and their approaches to dealing with them? Are your local authorities responsive to reports of problems?
