Manhole Cover Missing
Reported via desktop in the Manhole Cover - Missing category anonymously at 19:01, Tuesday 21 March 2023
Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS4342658.
Manhole Cover was missing as detailed in photograph enclosed. My front offside tyre hit the rim of the broken manhole and split the tyre on impact. I immediately phoned the police after I found a safe place to park to put on my spare wheel to inform them of the very dangerous situation in case a motorcyclist was to drive into the open manhole. Photographs of police car attending the scene enclosed.
