Thursday the 14th November 2019 driving home late at night through curbridge when I hit a raised manhole cover there is no road markings displayed anywhere stating about raised manholes the only road markings available at the Beginning saying ramp which leads you down on the road because the roads have been dug up and that's the only road markings available for any drivers to see either end as you can see through curbridge.

My pictures show there is no markings leading to the raise manhole pictured that I have hit as the next morning I went through the road to double check any signs or markings leading to raise manhole covers which there were none.

I have been told from the local garage that I need to replace my wheels because the front and the back were damaged and I've been told that I'm looking for practically all a song of about £2,000 I'm deeply disappointed with your last email regarding that you're not willing to help I have photo evidence I have the wheels in question.

My car is un safe now because I have a space saver on the wheel which United is so many miles on the space saver wheel. I have my daughter in the car all the time as I have school runs to do and because of this I feel unsafe driving my car with my daughter in it and I do not have have the money to replace the wheel that was damaged because of your negligence in signposting the correct roadworks like I said the only signpost available was either side of the road saying ramp going through Curbridge I probably counted numerous raised drain holes that was not labelled or listed.
