Drainage manhole cover protruding approximately 20mm above pavement level.

Reported via desktop in the Manhole category anonymously at 14:30, Monday 12 October 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Cover not correctly fitted in frame. It has been like this for some time.

(I am an elderly gentlemen, age 77; I had an nasty fall with my shopping on Saturday, fortunately only suffered cuts and bruises). It could have been much worse.

  • This report has been closed. However I visited site today and marked up any covers within the footway that I could see protruding, however cars do park on footways, and as you have not given an address this is outside, I am hoping that the one in your photo was marked to be fixed. If not then please raise another report stating the house number it is outside to help with my investigation. Regards
