Safety issue - There is a broken manhole cover on the B4009 outside Talbot Cottage - the manhole has sunken over 2inches and is deformed - this leads to exceptionally loud banging as traffic passes over the cover - this is intrusive. In addition there is a hazard to motor traffic and bicycles

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 5 minutes later

The manhole was noted by workmen (in the past 1-2 years) during a previous identical drain cover repair nearby on the B4009 although they did not return as expected.
