surrey tacks in road

I would like to warn of tacks in the road in London/Surrey, specifically from Hampton Court bridge headed toward Walton. The tacks are mostly brass coloured but some silver, and are also on the footpath. I also encountered tacks yesterday in the cycle lane between Hersham and Esher, especially near the Bourne river, but I think I have picked up most of those, amounting to a good handful. There were also a few between Esher and the North Downs, possibly carried along by motorist tyres. So be aware and help pick the rotten things up, it's not my job either.

Further to this, had a customer in shop today buying tubes because he had encountered tacks going up box hill, spread all the way up.
