Sunken Manhole Cover

Reported by Jeremy Blacker at 08:51, Mon 9 January 2017

Sent to Kirklees Borough Council 4 minutes later

There is a severely sunken manhole cover in the middle of Dewsbury Ring Road between the junction with Bradford Road and Northgate. It is almost directly in front of lamppost 25.

I contacted YW first who inspected and said it was not theirs. Please can you sort it.
