20 feet potholes on each side of the road

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 14:03, Tue 22 October 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 3 minutes later. ref: 1814957.

There are now 20 feet long pot holes on each side of the road from the corner going up the hill from the pub to the windmil. It is where the road was resurfaced but the tarmac did not go to the grass verge. The pothole is upto 6 inches deep in places on both sides of the road. It has got very much worst recently because the water runs down the hill to each side of the road and has washed away the verge. Last weekend a car accidently went too close to the verge and dropped into the 6 inche deep pothole and nearly lost control and crashing. The road either needs widening or the verge needs filling in upto road.
