Entrance to Network Rail Depot, Great Brickhill Road, Soulbury, Bucks.

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

The metal grid is exposed. Years ago a similar thing happened the other side of Soulbury and I accidentally drove over, the corner bursting my tyre and ruining my rim. I claimed but was told I was not eligible for compensation because you did not know about it. Therefore, as I drive passed this drain twice a day I usually drive around it but sometimes traffic forces me over it. Now you know, if I burst a tyre and ruin another rim, I rather hope I will be reimbursed for the damage. I learned the hard way, sadly.
