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.

A legal duty to maintain these roads still exists, but it falls to the owners of the road to do so.
