Manhole cover loose - makes loud clack clack sound when driven over

Reported via desktop in the Manhole & drain cover damage category anonymously at 09:26, Tue 16 November 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3126140.

This manhole cover rattles making a loud and very annoying clack clack sound when driven over, which can even be heard from indoors at nearby homes, which is especially disturbing at night. I have highlighted the cover in question on the attached photo.

  • Really, painfully loud and alarming clack when nearby, nearly fell over in shock. Young children behind me started crying to their parents as they were frightened.
