Reference earlier report: ENQ20879635


The drain cover in question looks broken and about to collapse. Cars are continuously driving over it and it makes a very loud banging noise with every car (this noise is extremely distracting and is keeping us awake at night).

This is located at the junction of Watlington Street when you approach the High Street junction while driving on Watlington street in Nettlebed, left hand side of the road.

This drain covers have been like this for at least 8 weeks.

Thank you.
