For a long time there has been a noisy drain cover on the main road, this has got worse and worse and is sinking further down in the road. as traffic hits the cover it sounds like a gun shot, a lot worse when HGV vehicles cross it shakes our house's we are in next road. Will not be long before this causes an accident

  • Please can you sort this drain out, constant bang bang noise all day and night also shakes our houses when HGV vehicles cross it. It is a noise nuisance that is effecting a number of households three of which are occupied by elderly and infirm people ( oldest 103 ). Please can you sort this . C Smith (

  • No action taken, noise is getting louder 24hrs a day needs to be fixed , this is upsetting for all those living close to the location of the drain. Very poor and uncaring response from those responsible for these matters.
