Incredibly deep sunken manhole cover. Today there’s broken tarmac / cement on the road. There is a literal hole in the floor. TFB have been aware of this from recent reports, closing them and not actioning. Making life easier for TFB by highlighting the exact manhole cover from google maps (even the old google maps shows a poor surface, but the manhole cover has sunk significantly more)
