Large pot hole in path near 6 portree walk

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 3 minutes later. ref: 1873573.

This pothole has been here years, progressively getting worse. Numerous children have been hurt falling in it. My 5yr old took a fall in it yesterday and scraped his face in several places and took a small chunk from his forehead. A fri nd of his went down there in the summer making a real mess of her knees. There's a lot of older people that live in this area one who has recently had a knee operation. That path is used a lot by people who use the bus stop that stops just near it on willowbrook Rd. I do worry about an older person falling there on the way to the bus. They won't just bounce up again like my 5yr old. The paths in general around Portree walk aren't very good as it's used by many pedestrians to gain access to both willowbrook school and Lodge Park school.
