  • 1st tried to report this yesterday (Monday 10th) approx 7:30am. Was told it’ll be fixed. Came home today and it looks like the road around it is sagging. So phoned again and eventually spoke to Phil at the Highway advice line at 16:37 Bin lorry is coming down early tomorrow. I’m a bit worried it’ll cave in
