Large loose drain cover very noisy

Reported via mobile in the Manhole covers category anonymously at 16:25, Sunday 19 November 2023

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 5229728.

The drain cover outside of my house (397 Blackfen Rd, DA15 9NJ) has been loose for months, and is very noisy as a result. Every time a car drives over it, it makes a very loud, inescapable clanking noise. My 11 year old son sleeps in the front bedroom and is struggling to sleep due to the sometimes constant noise. There isn't a room in the house that you can't hear the noise and it's driving us all mad.
