A pothole the size of Sywell reservoir (over exaggeration) but filled with water as you enter the village.

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 15:58, Fri 6 December 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 3 minutes later. ref: 1877354.

This pothole has been caused due to the land drainage continuously running down this stretch of road for a number of weeks now. It is filled with water and cannot be seen at night but is the biggest of the potholes along Orlingbury Road. Whilst your folk are spray painting it yellow they might want to drive the whole of Orlingbury Road towards Orlingbury as there are multiple holes along there now. Some really tyre shredders waiting to be found.
