Tarmac around manhole cover has crumbled, manhole cover is loose

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 4 minutes later

Have noticed the cracked tarmac is now crumbling, two lumps of tarmac approximately the size of my fist have come out recently (one was on pavement and another loose in the road), and the manhole cover visibly moves when vehicles drive over it. It is 40mph road and does carry heavy goods vehicles, so a bit concerned this might be getting worse quickly. Its in the centre of the northbound carriageway outside number 5 Oxford Road.
