Deafening manhole cover

Reported via desktop in the Manhole Cover - Damaged (rocking or noisy) category anonymously at 12:23, Monday 24 May 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2745601.

Longstanding problem with complaints made by many but never tackled. Loose, awfully noisy manhole cover, very high decibel noise, constant, disturbs non stop, even shakes windows and floors of flats nearby, hence little sleep. Urgent solution required. Thank you.
