Manhole cover on 212 city road

Reported via mobile in the Drain Cover - Missing or Damaged category anonymously at 00:30, Wed 17 November 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3127995.

As I can see that this issue has been reported before on the 12/10/21. It is right by the traffic lights infront of the new building that is being built called 'the arc' 'a new beacon for city road' I have been reporting this issue of the loud manhole drain cover since may/June. I have called Thames water a few times only to tell me recently that I have to contact Islington council and then they told me that tfl is in charge of this problem. 2 guys from tfl came out and put black tar in one corner of the drain and that did not work. It's very noisy at night when streets are quiet, it is affecting my sleep and mental health for the last few months. Can someone please come and fix it permanently by putting the tar over the whole drain and sealing it up properly. Thank you.
