After landing the pilot turned off the runway onto the taxyway leading to the apron. He then decided to refuel the aircraft and elected to taxy directly to the refuelling shed. As the aircraft left the movement area the nosewheel dropped into a drain, leading to a pipe culvert, which was on the very edge of the movement area and was difficult to see even at close range.
