I walked over this covered manhole cover and it fell through. I hurt my leg and ankle. Someone has put the cover back on now and I'm really worried someone else will step on it and do the same. Furthermore its stated outside and old people's home.

    HI thank you so much for coming out and making this secure yesterday. Which cable company is responsible for this cover? I naturally wish to make a complaint. My knee still hurts and I have pain in my ankle.

    Kind regards
