This pot hole is in the middle of the road at the junction between Thorngate Street and Albert Street. It appears to be marked for repair, but has caused two lots of damage to my car suspension, breaking two coil springs on both the front and rear axle - I have to use this road to access Temple Court (shown as Dove Court on your map) on a daily basis since January 2019, where my father is in a nursing home. The first instance broke my rear off side spring and on 3rd May 2019 and on 28th May 2019 it broke my front near side spring with immediate impact causing me to have to drive straight to Formula one on Northfield Ave Kettering it be inspected and immediately repaired. Both repairs cost just under £200 each.
