Man hole cover loose

Reported via mobile in the Damaged or missing cover category anonymously at 11:15, Tue 20 July 2021

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2877217.

My daughter was walking along the grass leading down the hill towards the astro pitch. The stepped onto the manhole cover and it flipped up, she fell in and has really injured her shin and thigh. It is very dangerous and I'm worried that if it was a young child or older person this could potentially be alot worse.
