  • Split my passenger front tyre at around 7.30PM 15/01/01 after driving over a large pot. Unfortunately I couldn't avoid the hole as it was dark and I didn't see it, at the time. This pot hole is very deep an dangerous I was only driving 40MPH at the point of impact. The tyre has a large split and is beyond repair. The car is book into the garage Saturday for a replacement and inspection.

  • Unable to avoid this pothole due to ambulance travelling in opposite direction. Tyre blew out instantly. Had to abandon car - thanks to Ned Davis garage at Rothwell for recovering the car and repairing. This really should have been repaired already looking at the first report date.

  • Split my passenger front tyre at around 4:40pm 16/01/01 after driving over this large pot hole. Unfortunately as it was dark and I didn't see it, i couldn't avoid it. I was only driving 40mph at the point of impact and it created such a noise! This is a very dangerous and deep pothole. The tyre had a large split and was beyond repair. Had to get a tyre replacement the next day as i use my car for work. I'm even more annoyed as this pothole was reported way back in December and then seeing a few other people hitting this pothole and damaging their car is beyond a joke! I have put a claim against the council for this and was told that i needed to make a post on this site first to report it. I have noticed that since i've had the incident the pothole hasn't been fixed even though more people have hit and damaged their cars too. I Hope this gets fixed soon! There are plenty more along this route as well!

  • Hi has anyone put a claim in, I am just waiting for quotes for a buckled alloy then working out how to make a claim. So poor how slow this has been dealt with from what I know lots of cars affected Should start a Facebook group to work together for claims

  • I have put a claim in and have received a response from LGPSS stating that they are contacting Highways to confirm validity of claim. As my damage occurred 10 days after the pothole was due to be repaired I expect to be compensated and if not will take through Court and add costs.
