Dangerous open manhole adjacent to Letterbox

Reported in the Manhole category anonymously at 10:47, Saturday 24 August 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 3 minutes later

This BT access manhole was damaged several weeks ago and reported to an Open Reach engineer who was working in Christmas Common. It hasn't been repaired and ironically an Open Reach van drove into it on 22nd August 2019 making it considerably worse, he failed to inspect what he had driven into, but simply reversed up and drove on. If someone went to post a letter at dusk they could injure themselves badly. It also illustrates the constant problem of traffic in Christmas Common driving too fast and taking to the verges.
