Problem with BK/HEATH_AND_REACH/6 and BM/SOU/13/2

A map is shown below. The underlying map is an Ordnance Survey 1:25000 map that has been produced by Bing. On the underlying map, public rights of way (PROW) are indicated by dashed green lines. Solid lines have been superimposed on top of the underlying map (and will usually hide these dashed green lines). A solid red line signifies a footpath, a solid magenta line signfies a bridleway, a solid green line signifies a restricted byway and a solid blue line signifies a byway open to all traffic (BOAT). These solid lines have been produced from data obtained from the Council of Central Bedfordshire (BK) and from the Council of Buckinghamshire (BM). You can click on a solid line to get more details about that PROW. You can click on the + and - buttons to zoom in/out. Often the boundary line becomes more obvious if you zoom out.

There's a footpath that crosses the border between Buckinghamshire and Central Bedfordshire which seems to have a bit that is missing from the datasets provided by the two councils. The bit that is missing runs from the SE end of BM/SOU/13/2 to the NW end of BK/HEATH_AND_REACH/6. It runs from about SP912290 (51.95221,-0.67307) to SP917287 (51.94929,-0.66648). That means the gap is about 802 metres long.

The missing bit is in Central Bedfordshire. I've looked at their online map. The missing bit does appear on that map as a continuation of BK/HEATH_AND_REACH/6. I guess it needs to be added to Central Buckinghamshire's data.
