Loose manhole/drain cover

Reported in the Manhole covers category anonymously at 10:23, Friday 12 June 2020

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later

Going towards Erith town centre on Northend road, on the dual carriageway road outside of Beadle place, is a loose manhole/drain cover which makes a loud clunk-click whenever a vehicle drives over it. As it's a very busy road, this happens every few seconds -it's a bit maddening and disturbs sleep. Also has the potiental to become dangerous if left, please could something be done to fix it? Thank you
