Large section of metal surface removed by recovering your recycling vehicle than entered the ditch

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 12:25, Tue 10 December 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 5 minutes later. ref: 1882194.

The recycling lorry drove into the drainage ditch and needed to be recovered by a second council bin lorry also attending to get them out. The result of the recovery has stripped off at least 50cm off the tarmac edge of the road approx 60cm by 8 mtrs. This has weakened the edge of the road and given the inclement weather likely over the coming weeks I am concerned will result in it breaking away completely and will be unsafe. Please attend as soon as possible to repair.
