I drove to Torquay on the 15th of July around 1.30 PM and had an incident on a dual carriageway, caused by a manhole cover to dislodge, which damaged my car, car behind me, and several other vehicles. The location was A303 near the slip road, which leads to a village called Marsh, just before the Devon sign.

My car has a damaged wheel alloy and broken tyre. I had a couple who lived nearby managed to put temporary tyre for me and car behind me who also stopped, had 3 damaged wheel alloys.

As I changed details with him and he got recovered, his details are Kieran Simer, Ya69 XRD.

We both co contacted somerset Council but were told its Highway who ma ages the road.

My contact details are: Maarja Ernesaks PX61 UNK 15/07/2021
