The cover outside 4 Victoria Road, Sidcup has broken

Reported via desktop in the Manhole covers category anonymously at 21:26, Monday 30 May 2022

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 3562692.

We have just seen this evening that the concrete cover (says post office on it) which looks quite old, has cracked and a piece has fallen into it. This has left a hole big enough for a child's foot to get stuck in or cause a trip. It looks like another piece is likely to fall in soon which will make the hole bigger. We have put a traffic cone over it for now - but it probably needs something doing with it quite quickly or a more robust cover/barrier.

  • The cone I had put over the hole has now had a rail put around it, but no progress with dealing with the hole. :(
