Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 3 minutes later. ref: 1606000.

Several large potholes near the beginning of Boughton Lane on the Boothville end.

The potholes are on the left hand side near the edge of the road.

Cars swerve to avoid the potholes and several times I’ve witnessed near misses where cars swerving to avoid the potholes have almost hit oncoming cars. As cars are exiting Boughton lane they are usually going fast so I can easily see a serious accident happening in the near future. Please fix before there is an accident.

My own car has suffered damage due to hitting the potholes and required suspension needing to be fixed.

Can’t take photos as not safe to stop the car on the lane and would represent serious risk to human life getting out of car to take photos.
