Drain cover sinking significantly in to road

Reported via desktop in the Loose / Raised/Sunken category anonymously at 22:08, Wednesday 31 March 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2646403.

The drain cover is slowly sinking in to the road again and the step between the road and the lowered curb is substantial, leading to issues with the car wheels driving over it as we drive in to and out of our property. This has become more prominent over the past 6 months and the tarmac is now beginning to crack and break as the metal drain cover is pulled in to the ground.
