Deep and long pothole near verge

Reported via mobile in the Potholes / Highway Condition category by B. Turner at 21:57, Wednesday 24 April 2024

Sent to West Northamptonshire Council less than a minute later. ref: 5896040.

Our first time on this road heading to Northampton . We were unable to take evasive action and hit a pot hole which damaged our wheel and tyre . We managed to pull over in a slipway by a farmers gate / field entrance . Rac had to come and assist as the wheel was misshapen and the tyre had a puncture . .we were an hour from home and this road has blind bends and fast traffic and we were unable to get a picture as we are vulnerable and it was dangerous .. We had to drive home straight away and it’s been an expensive repair as well as an anxious drive home and family day ruined . A second car pulled up behind us also with a flat tiyre from same pot hole . Please investigate before something more serious happens . We haven’t had use of the car to return to identify the exact spot due to the damaged wheel
