Sunken manhole on Birmingham Road opposite entrance to Barley Mow car park

Reported in the Gully or manhole defect category anonymously at 13:32, Fri 4 September 2020

Sent to Warwickshire County Council less than a minute later

Manhole cover in the road has sunk and come loose, and is making a crashing sound every time a car drives over. Seems to be getting worse.

Busy road means it keeps the entire row of houses awake at night, and has started shaking the foundations when regular lorries drive over it. Obviously made more disruptive and noticeable because everyone is working from home.
