Manhole cover still overflowing when it rains!

Overflowing drain in main carriageway outside number 82. This problem was reported on 28th December 2020 (Ref: 2449724) and according to this website is Fixed. No it is not. Did anyone actually visit the site and lift the cover to inspect the problem? Or did they come on a dry day when it wasn't overflowing so all was good! Come on BCC, please sort this one out as, when it is raining very hard, the pressure of the water from below actually lifts the cover slightly so when vehicles pass over it it makes a loud clunking sound. And now, with more frequent periods of heavy rain, it is only a matter of time until a vehicle dislodges it and there is a serious accident. Incidentally, this problem has been reported several times since 2019 and still not resolved.
