Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

With the flood down the road today the man hole cover has been lifted up by flood water. Man hole cover is on pathway just before pedestrian crossing. It should be changed out for one the opens and closes (with the hinges) like the one only 2 metres away. With flooding increasing down the road it's lightly cover will lift off and float down the road.

  • The manhole cover is still lifted and causing trip hazard. Someone has put a cone they found on it but still requires fixing.
