Manhole left uncovered

Reported in the Gully or manhole defect category anonymously at 14:34, Fri 10 April 2020

Sent to Warwickshire County Council 2 minutes later

Walking down the lane and my sons leg went down the hole full of water (up to his hip). The hole couldnt be seen as the grass covered it. Manhole cover is there and in one piece, however overgrown. Looks like they've forgotten to put it back after use. My son now has cuts down his leg and bruising. I have placed an old fence post over it (was all I could find). Its on the approach to the canal bridge travelling towards the A5
