Water meter manhole not secure

Reported via mobile in the Damaged or missing cover category anonymously at 19:50, Mon 27 September 2021

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3028559.

My 7yr old son was on his scooter outside 232 London road near saxonbury way and on his scooter he rode over a water meter man hole cover and didn’t realise it was insecure and the lid was slightly open and also has a raised lip . As he rode over the cover which was not secure it sent him flying which resulted him smashing his head and cut his arm on the floor . I’m very disappointed that you the council have not done anything about this on inspections on our paths and also the covers on saxonbury way are not secure either . I believe we are intiled to compensation and Will seek advice
