  • This cover is now a dangerous obstacle and has unbalanced a number of motorcyclists. Please can it be investigated as a matter of urgency?

  • This problem is deteriorating and will shortly cause an accident on Main Street as cars and lorries are swerving to avoid it. The manhole cover has dropped even more due to heavy lorries continually driving over it. It would be helpful if this could be repaired as soon as possible. Thank you
