Raised man hole cover in road

Reported in the Manhole category anonymously at 12:08, Sunday 20 September 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The manhole/drain cover has gradually been getting higher and higher, raising the surrounding tarmac too. It is now about 3 or 4 inches raised. Not only is this a danger for cars and their tyres but, as a pedestrian, I tripped over it today, causing cuts and bruises to hands and knee.
