Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

There is a manhole where the tarmac has deteriorated and been washed away leaving a sharp edge exposed and liable to damage tyres and wheel hubs as it is in the edge of the road normally used b the near side of the car it is in Eaton Hastings near the cottages not sure if the pin drop is quite in the right place .Looks like it has been damaged for a while
