Manhole cover caved in with inadequate fencing

The roadworks outside the entrance to Warwick School on Banbury Road have resulted in a collapsed BT inspection pit cover on the pavement/cycle path due to a lorry having been driven over it. There is a deep and open hole that is inadequately cordoned off and represents an imminent danger to users of the path. This has been there for a couple of months. The contractors, who are now nearly finished, say they have raised it with BT and nothing has been done. It really needs sorting out, even if as a temporary measure some sheeting could be put over it.
