Sent to TfL 5 minutes later. TfL ref: FMS1976605.

Loose manhole cover on Balham High Road outside Catherine Baird House adjacent to the set of traffic lights causing loud noise when vehicles go past it. This has been happening since last year. This is a nuisance to residents in the area. And the tarmac looks cracked and sunken.
