Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2887554.

Good afternoon, Riding on July the 9th around 11am from Fulham where I live to the city of london , I drove without noticing on a piece of construction metal with few sharp angles, lying on the road pavement on Byward street (EC3R), near to the traffic light of the junction with Trinity square. which cut my rear tyre on my BMW motorcycle (RX69SPU), The rear tyre got flat in seconds and I could' move nor fixe my bike and I had to call BMW assistance. 2 hours after a van took my bike to the tyre shop FWR Tyres (SE11 4LD) as the tyre was not pluggable as seriously damage although less than 1000 miles old and I had to buy a new one at FWR and the mud guard of my bike has also been damage and i had to change it as well, it has been done yesterday at BMW Maidenhead where my bike is serviced. The cost of this is £150 for the tyre and £159 for the mud guard (my 2 invoices are available). The BMW Van Assistance agent told me that the city of London was supposed to clean the street from such debris and I should write to you when my problem will be fixed. Hope you can help me and cover my losses. Mr Christian Malissard 07767770333 or christian.malissard@gmail.com
