2 potholes in entrance/exit to 'the close' off Watford Road which can't be avoided if using junction correctly/safely

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 1 minute later. ref: 1917416.

Potholes have been here for several weeks and have now become so big that they affect how people can use the road when entering or exiting 'the close' at its junction with the main Watford Road. They have been filled in numerous times but as soon as the cold or wet weather comes the integrity of the patches is destroyed and with 18 houses and at least the same number of vehicles (not to mention the numerous delivery vans and oil lorries) which are in and out of the close every day the patches are soon broken up and the potholes reappear.
