My son came out yesterday morning to find the manhole cover completely up on edge, he managed to get it back down but the grid is completely skewed and as you can see the cover has now started to tilt/tip again.
Council ref: ENQ22930610

Getting much worse! Somebody will get hurt. I’m guessing when the rubbish truck ends up in the hole something may get done

Someone fell through this today. Lucky it wasn’t a very bad accident. I have put cones out to warn others. Very concerned this isn’t being taken seriously!
