Incorrect Business Listing + Business Details returned after a Google Search

I'm having a problem where the incorrect business listing is being returned when searching for my business on a normal google search.


I've created a Business Listing for a new business. I've had the postcard posted through and confirmed that we own the property. However, when doing a google search for our business, in the business listing box on the right-hand side of the search listings it shows a different business listing - exactly the same name but the address, postcode and map location is wrong, it goes to a location about 5 miles away. There is no business actually at that location, it's basically a redundant listing with slightly incorrect details.

The problem is any edits I submit for this listing don't work (it's been showing as 'You edit is being reviewed' for months), and I can't take control of the listing to edit it directly.

How can I fix this situation, please?

Thanks you!

Please provide links to both listings on Google Maps and indicate which is which.
