14 inch pothole and blocked drain subsidence

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 12:21, Thu 1 August 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways 5 minutes later. ref: 1716365.

This pothole has been here for over 12 months but has recently worsened due to heavy lorries bumping through it. Rubble from the hole is hitting the pavement, parked cars and our house. When wet, water and stones have hit the window approximately 6 feet away. The drain is blocked with road rubble and the metal grating is beginning to subside. Thank you.
