Drain cover sits proud of footpath

Reported via desktop in the Obstruction (Not Vegetation) category anonymously at 09:00, Thursday 14 October 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3061551.

There is a drain cover which is higher than the footpath with poor, steeply raised and cracking tarmac around it. Yesterday I stopped to help a runner who had tripped over it and sustained a head injury on her eye,nose and cheek bone where she fell over the drain.

The drain is positioned on the footpath that runs around the edge of the roundabout at the junction of Cobbs Lane turning left on the A509 towards Bozeat.
