There is a manhole cover that bangs every time a vehicle drives over it. Leman Street is an extremely busy road. The tarmac in which the manhole is set is breaking away leaving a dip and an aperture. This matter has been ongoing for some time but I guess no-one has reported it. The manhole is immediately outside the Public House The Oliver Conquest.

  • Repair was undertaken within a few days but the tarmac is breaking away again and we are back to a clunking sound every time a vehicle goes over it.
