  • Dear sir/madam On the 25th December 2019 at approximately 19.15 I was driving from corby along the pipewell road with my 3 children in the car. First of all I hit the smaller pot hole and then roughly only 50yrds further along the road I then heard the loudest bang I’ve ever heard as I hit the next pot hole. The pot hole wasn’t even at the edge of the road. The size and the depth of it there was no avoiding them. I pulled over and had to call the RAC as my tyre had punctured and I wanted reassurance as well. When they eventually got to me the tyre was changed but only after the tyre rim had been put back into place as that was also damaged. I then tried to turn my car in the ignition and the key would not move so I then had to be towed home. My car has then been into the garage since needing a new ignition barrel along with new keys. This whole thing has cost me an absolute fortune which I really could of done without especially at Christmas time not only that it scared the living daylights out of my children and myself. I have needed time off work due to pain in my neck and I am also really frightened now about driving In the dark. I would be very grateful if you could look at this claim for compensation for me please Thank you
