Failed manhole cover botch job

Reported via desktop in the Road surface category anonymously at 14:02, Mon 9 August 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

This manhole cover which has been broken months ago was supposedly fixed 24 hours ago. All that has been done is that it was tarmac'd over but the corner that crashes with every car has been left exposed. Therefore it still makes a loud bang everytime a car drives over it and causes us distress. Also the tarmac has cracked down one side already. Awful job!!!
