Foot sized hole in manhole cover on grass verge.

Reported in the Manhole category anonymously at 10:16, Friday 31 July 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Hole was covered by recently strimmed grass and I fell into it up to my thigh. It is over 1 metre deep. No injury apart from grazing so don't worry. I have put a red bollard upside down in the hole.
