Multiple potholes along edge of road

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category by Matthew Ross at 12:17, Fri 30 August 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 4 minutes later. ref: 1749809.

There are multiple potholes all along this stretch of road. I regularly travel on this road and I normally try to drive as centrally as possible to avoid hitting the potholes. On this occasion there was a lorry coming in the other direction, so I had to move to the left of the road and could not avoid hitting one of the potholes. This caused my tyre to puncture and also knocked the alloy wheel out of shape. This has cost me £50 to repair.
