Broken up road surface around manhole

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category by Anne Chamberlain at 13:15, Wednesday 26 February 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 6 minutes later. ref: 2023700.

It appears drains have not coped with recent heavy rainfall and strong flow of water has pushed up manhole and road surface between war memorial and Church. The displace/loose manhole cover could be dangerous for vehicles and pedestrians. This issue has become worse in late February
