6.5 inch pothole on Cotterstock road, just outside the old pumping station.

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 14:23, Tuesday 14 January 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 4 minutes later. ref: 1937130.

On the 28th December 2019 at approximately 5:30 I was driving down Cotterstock Road, between Cotterstock and Oundle where my car hit one of the numerous pot holes on that road. This cause my front left tyre to burst and my car to be towed home by the AA. This road has been covered in pot holes for a number of years and nothing has been done about it. The pot hole I hit and the picture is attached was approximately 6.5 inches deep. Because of the terrible conditions of this road this caused me to pay out to get a new tyre for my car. (Please see invoice attached, £71.60)
