  • Make sure you tell the council insurers that this hole has been present for at least 2 months, has been reported by me many times ( see various FMS reports of various dates) and all the council has done is paint white paint round it, then yellow paint. It is huge and dangerous, and off course is virtually invisible in the dark or wet. Take a bow, Bromley council and your useless contractors!
