Sunken road/ pothole near drain

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 14:06, Wednesday 18 September 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 5 minutes later. ref: 1772093.

This pothole has appeared since road was resurfaced and has slowly worsened. It is causing rain water to run off down the hole, and is causing it to sink further. All rain water is draining down the hole rather than the drain nearby, likely to be causing further damage/subsidence under the surface, and if not addressed, potential damage to vehicle wheels/tyres using the dropped kerb.
