Dangerous manhole cover

Reported in the Manhole Cover - Damaged (rocking or noisy) category anonymously at 16:50, Fri 4 September 2020

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2278795.

The manhole cover next to the Bertha James Day Centre bus stop, repairs to which have been bodged regularly over the last few years, is more dangerous then ever, please can you ask your contractor to come and throw some more tarmac over it so they can charge us taxpayers for the pleasure of paying for this again in future.

Or they could fix it properly this time?
