A Cotmanhay resident has raised concerns over a dislodged man hole cover on her street.

Mrs Sissions, of Milton Avenue, called the Advertiser after spotting that the cover had come looseon Monday.

She said: “It’s really very dangerous and someone will definitely trip over it and could even get their foot stuck in there.

“It came loose on Monday at some point and all the neighbours have said about it.

“It’s not just that it will trip someone up there’s a hole appeared next to it as well.

“I can’t imagine how it could have been damaged so badly, it must have been something very heavy drive over it.
“We just want it fixing but can’t find out who to ring.”

Erewash Borough Council and Derbyshire County Council were both contacted by residents.
