Very deep pothole next to drain on A4500 (Wilby to Northampton).

It's difficult to pin point its exact location. Hopefully the camera footage helps. It is somewhere between the World's End and the built up area in Northampton going in that direction. It is next to a drain cover.

  • Up the hill from this by the Ecton village sign road floods after decent shower - almost across both carriageways dangerous for an A road esp in darkness.This has been evident for 6 months at least. I hit it myself in the darkness recently - nearly takes steering wheel from your hands.
