Drain cover very rusty and a trip hazard
Reported via mobile in the Manhole & Drain Covers category by Simon Forster , Ketton Parish Councillor at 16:29, Fri 13 August 2021
Sent to Rutland County Council less than a minute later
This cover appears to be very rusty iron , holed in two places , and is curling up so as to present a trip hazard to pedestrians. Although a vehicle is unlikely to run over it fully, it being to the edge of the alleyway, it is unlikely to support a wheel
It looks like a drain cover

This has become worse. My wife tripped on it and fell badly, hurting her forearm and a bad cut/graze to her hand. When we walked back later man came out of adjoining house and told us that it was being replaced but it was still the same yesterday.

This enquiry has been closed because it’s been determined that it relates to an un-adopted road. Un-adopted roads do not have to be maintained by the Highway Authority (Rutland County Council) under the Highways Act 1980. A legal duty to maintain these roads still exists, but it falls to the owners of the road to do so. In order to determine whether a road is adopted you can refer to the National Street Gazetteer website https://www.findmystreet.co.uk/ map
State changed to: Closed
