Unravel damaged manhole cover

Reported in the Manhole Cover - Damaged (rocking or noisy) category anonymously at 13:10, Fri 4 September 2020

Sent to TfL 3 days, 39 minutes later. TfL ref: FMS2278342.

This manhole cover is made of two parts, it is uneaven, loose, it has also sunk causing loud bangs and vibrations as vehicles drive over it. I’m irritated by the noise it makes and also concerned that if it broke open a vehicle could have a serious accident.

This has steadily got worse over the last few months.
