Drain cover badly sunken causing problems driving into property

Reported via desktop in the Loose / Raised/Sunken category anonymously at 09:13, Saturday 17 February 2024 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5589490.

The drain cover has been sunken for many years but seems to be getting lower and worse lately. Having had a dropped curb put in so we can park off road on our drive we are noticing how bad it is when we drive over it more. May be risk to cyclists if there wheel was to go in it. Directly outside 40 Handcross Way in Higham Ferrers ..NN10 8AE. We would be grateful if the drain could be assessed as to whether it may collapse or cause a risk to road users. Many thanks Mr Robert Parry
