"Help with lifting a manhole cover"
This is a bit of strange request. We have a couple of manhole covers on our patio. They have never been lifted since they were fitted in 2010 and now - despite cleaning them with a pressure hose - we physically can't get them open. Can anyone come and give us some tips on how to do this. They have plastic handles rather than steel and we are a bit afraid of breaking them if we use force!
