Drainage hole with cover missing

There is a deep circular hole in the pavement - it looks like a drainage pipe or similar with a cover missing.

It would be very easy for a pedestrian to get their foot caught in this if they weren't looking where they were going - I nearly did!

  • Noticed the metal drain cover lying on the ground nearby whilst walking across College Green today. Have put it back in place as best I can, though it's still a bit loose.

  • My friend has just grazed her knee after falling in said pothole. She fell one leg in and luckily was not severely injured - but could have easily broken her leg. It’s very sore and this could have been much worse. Please action this as a matter of immense urgency.
