Manhole/drain cover has sunk & now very noisy

Cover looks like it has dropped & when vehicles drive over, it causes loud thump/click. Very repetitive and noisy particularly with lorries.

  • The drain has yet again dropped & is very noisy. My husband and I are woken daily from around 5am onwards with this!!! Please can it be sorted to prevent recurring problems ? I work from home and every few seconds hear this. Its not only lorries that cause the problem but any vehicle. Loads of folk locally finding it very tedious. It has gone on on long time! Thank you

  • 2nd email today. The clunking from the noisy drain has just occurred 22 times in 5 minutes. That is once every 13 seconds. Thought it may be useful to know JUST HOW BAD IT HAS GOT! Thank you!
