Open Drain/Litter

In between the houses of 50 and 51 High Axwell, there is a small grassed area with some shrubs. In the middle of this land there is a sewerage drain. The corner of the drain is broken therefore open. Alongside the drain as aforementioned are a small number of bushes/shrubs which are surrounded by an awful lot of litter. My concern is because of the drain being open there is a potential health hazard due to the attraction of vermin to the litter. This problem is directly between two residential houses where children play. Please could the bushes be removed, which would alleviate is as a dumping ground, the litter cleared away and the drain repaired. Many Thanks,
