Deep, sunken drain cover in cycle lane.

Sent to Brighton and Hove City Council 4 minutes later

There is a sunken drain cover which presents a major hazard to people using the cycle lane. At this point the lane is very narrow - barely wider than the drain cover itself, so that isn't much space to avoid it without moving over into the bus/taxi lane. In wet weather it fills with water and at night is difficult to see coming up.
