The metal cover for road drainage has been removed leaving a very deep hole which a car could hit if turning left sharply or pedestrian walking could fall into. It is at least 3 feet deep and has water in it. We aquired a large concrete paving slab to place over it from nearby Malborne house but this can move if hit by a car etc... Needs urgent attention!! I was told by a facebook user and went to check it as they were concerned someone may fall into it as elderly people in area.

This has been reported to Skanska 1240- been advised they will send a crew out right away.
