There is a very loose cover on a Thames Water Inspection plate. It is such that almost every vehicle clatters over it. It is extremly noisy and last night the A34 was deviated up this Hill and the noise was very disruptive to sleep.

Work has been done on this water point on Hinksey Hill in recent years (It is situated at the Junction of Spring Copse and the Hill) Now the tarmac around has sunk and the plate is now loose. Please inspect.
