Manhole issue - children playing - dangerous temporary board covering. The manhole on Whernside is in a extremely dangerous state - it has wooden boards which are weak and cannot take the weight of a person. It has been like this for a very long time and the local kids have apparently played in and on it. This has a 5ft drop and needs immediate attention. Cllr Jim Ellis
