334 Finchley Road- manhole and drain damaged and blocked

Reported via mobile in the Manhole Cover - Damaged (rocking or noisy) category by Silvia Kirk at 11:52, Sat 17 October 2020

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2344928.

The manhole covering in front of 334 Finchley Road is broken. It was fixed a few months ago but the pavement is flying off the road into my front yard and the noise is all day and night. The building feels like it’s shaking when it happens.

Also the drain next to it is blocked, so every time it rains heavily it feels like we are only a few inches away from having a flooded home.
