Exceptionbally loud clattering and banging of manhole cover when vehicles go over it.

I have previously reported the problem of the noise nuisance of the manhole cover when vehicles are going over it. I was advised to contact Thames Water as it was not your responsibility. However, Thames Water have been out and inspected the man hole cover and have agreed that there is a noise issue and that also it isn't their responsibility as it doesn't belong to them. They have checked their drawings, plans etc and it doesn't show up.

So I have been pointed back in your direction. Hope you can appreciate that I feel like a point pong ball but now a very frustrated one as no one will take responsibility. It has to belong to someone.

Could you please further investigate and get back to me.
