  • This hole has gotten deeper since the photo was taken, and is a lawsuit waiting to happen.

    The surrounding area has subsided more, which is disconcerting.

    Someone had placed a traffic cone in the hole to prevent people from breaking their ankle. However it seems that a street cleaner has removed the traffic cone. That changes Bristol Councils liability from passive to actively making the problem worse.
