Storm water blows off the manhole cover

At least twice recently, in periods of heavy rain, the manhole cover has been blown off and the path is completely flooded. There is evidence of tissue paper being washed along the path which I guess suggests some interaction with foul water/sewage. there is clearly a blockage somewhere. When the cover gets blown off, it poses a serious danger to pedestrians and cyclists on this very well used path.
