On 20.8.22, I tripped over a drainhole cover and bruised my head (over right eye), above my lip, left breast, and left knee

Reported via desktop in the Manhole & drain cover damage category anonymously at 15:00, Saturday 27 August 2022

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3784824.

Unfortunately I did not think to take a photo of the drain cover as I was in shock and my husband was trying to sort an issue with our tandem chain. We came off the road and I was pushing the tandem up the hill on the pavement and didn't see the raised edge of the manhole cover. My husband was at the front and avoided it. I fell flat on my face. Luckily my helmet protected my head. I have photos of the major injuries, some of which remain sore and may possibly have future impact. I think I have pinpointed the correct area - just a few metres from entrance down to canal. This needs to be rectified in case of further, more immediately serious accidents.
