Large drain cover which has sunk and therefore created a substantial pothole

Reported in the Pothole category anonymously at 22:32, Thu 30 January 2020

Sent to TfL 3 minutes later. TfL ref: FMS1970578.

This defect is situated on the A102 heading north bound, near the slip road used for Tunnel Ave. I haven’t noticed this previously and I regularly use the road to commute. The problem appears to be a drain cover which has sunk and therefore causing a substantial ‘pothole’. I hit this whilst travelling at approx. 40mph and have since needed to have my car seen by a mechanic as it has caused damage to my suspension and steering alignment.
