Drain sinking and hole in road surface around it

Reported via desktop in the Pothole category anonymously at 16:40, Sun 31 October 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Cycled into this in the dark (and got injured) as couldn't see it due to approaching headlights and also impatient driver trying to overtake.

Lucky I managed the keep hold of the handlebars and stay on the bike and didn't get knocked off and into the path of one of the vehicles.

Water in the hole doesn't clearly show the depth, but this is a SERIOUS HAZARD for Cyclists
