Manhole cover broken. Slips past grid. Massive safety hazard

Reported via mobile in the Pavements category anonymously at 20:53, Friday 29 July 2022

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

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
