Loud, broken drain cover on A5

A drain cover on the A5, outside the Brave Oak pub and opposite the entry to Park Street is broken and creating a very loud noise when traffic rolls over it. The noise is so bad and frequent (especially when multi-wheeled vehicles like HGVs go over it) that numerous residents nearby, including us and our young daughter, cannot sleep!

This issue has been going on for at least two weeks now and supposedly this particular drain has been ‘fixed’ twice before.
