Reported via mobile in the Flooding/drainage (NH) category anonymously at 15:43, Thu 15 December 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4037335.

The grated drain is flipping into the air when cars/lorries drive over it, the whole unit has detached from the road and will cause damage to something soon or a vehicle may end up in the drain itself.

The Drain is located about 20 metres before the roundabout on the exit slip road from the Westbound M2 at Jct 5. It is on the inside lane near the central reservation.
