Loose drain cover

Seen a couple of possible accidents here recently - there is a drain cover on the northwest side of the A5086, just southwest of the junction to Dean (also signposted 'The Royal Yew") that seems to come loose. Today when I stopped the cover was sitting upright, at an angle of around 45 degrees, with the drain open, and a car had I think just driven through it and suffered a puncture. I stopped and replaced the drain cover so it was sitting flat, but I fear it may be loose and resent a continuing danger.
