WATCH: The Railing Outside Fort St. Angelo Looks Like It Could Use Some Support Of Its Own

'Yesterday I went for a walk there with my little girl, it was a nightmare to pass'

Fort St Angelo is a historic site in Maltese history, playing a pivotal role in the Great Siege of 1565 and famed throughout Europe for its defensive capabilities back in the day.

However, anyone walking around the perimeter of the Birgu fort nowadays would likely see a much more penetrable perimeter.

A video uploaded by Clayton Spiteri shows the state of an outside railing assumedly meant to protect passers-by from falling into the sea. However, bent at quite an angle and waving in the wind, the rail doesn't inspire much confidence - and people were quick to point the potential dangers out.

"As soon as someone gets hurt, that's when they'll fix it," one commenter on social media said, with another saying: "it's been like that forever, since we were young and used to play nearby."

After the video was uploaded to social media, people called for something to be done

Calls made by Lovin Malta to the authority in charge have remained unanswered at time of publishing

Do you think the railing is dangerous and needs to be fixed, or is it fine as it is?
