Subsidence at junction of Wood Lane and Beech Lane following a gushing water hydrant leak and heavy rain creating a deep ridge over half a meter long.

Reported in the Manhole category anonymously at 21:32, Saturday 19 September 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The deep ridge is extremely dangerous to pedestrians and cyclists. It caused me to twist my right ankle, right hip and left knee ( knee replaced 2015). I almost fell which could have caused broken bones instead of the twisting injuries sustained trying to avoid a fall. This trip hazard is not acceptable for road users of any age and particularly not for a 71 year old.
