Tyre Damage from sticking drain cover

Reported via mobile in the Drainage category anonymously at 15:21, Friday 30 October 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The drain outlet cover protrudes into the high way and was covered with vegetation which meant it was obscured from my view so I could not see it and hit this cover. It has damaged both my near side tyres, blowing out one and creating a bulge in the other. I have had to get a tow truck to take me to a tyre garage to replace the tyres as the car was not drivable.
