This problem is getting worse and was reported in May last year. Outside the home of disabled 92 year old. Cover sinking and concrete surrounding cracking and breaking. A falls hazard. I have contacted Thames water and it's not theirs. Thank you.

  • Contacted Thames water and BT and manhole cover is not theirs although they have said it is a hazard. When is someone coming to sort out this problem please. It is distinctly possible that a broken hip is going to occur sooner rather than later.
