Manhole cover cracked and likely to collapse

Reported in the Manhole/drain cover on pavement/verge category anonymously at 17:58, Sat 11 April 2020

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council 1 minute later. Council ref: 370493.

Manhole cover on right side of Ancaster Hall by the communal bins has two large cracks through it, rendering it unsafe and likely to collapse if stood on.

The manhole is iron and the cracks run through the centre. They are fully through the iron, not just surface cracks. The manhole sags when stepped on with the possibility that it will fail if the full weight of an unsuspecting person is put on it.
