Pothole at least 7cm depth 152cm long 82cm wide

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 09:53, Mon 11 November 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 3 minutes later. ref: 1840602.

This pothole is extremely dangerous. Although an attempt has been made to mark it out it is impossible to avoid especially when driving in the dark and with oncoming traffic. Consequently during heavy rain and poor visibility at night , my vehicle impacted the pothole at approx 35mph with oncoming traffic making avoiding it impossible.I am now in the position of having to replace not only a burst tyre but a badly damaged alloy wheel ,both of which are damaged beyond repair.
