  • This damaged, loose drain cover is not only causing considerable nuisance to local residents and patrons of the adjacent pub The Kennington, it is also a serious risk to cyclists and passing pedestrians as large buses and HGVs crash over it. This must be repaired a.s.ap. before a serious accident occurs. It is also blocked so poses an ongoing flooding risk to nearby homes and businesses. Thank you.
