20inch wide and very deep pothole. Especially dangerous at night as you can't see it.

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways 5 minutes later. ref: 1940346.

This pothole has been here since December 2019 and has got bigger. It is in the centre of the road and is spreading outwards on a daily basis. I helped an elderly man last Tuesday who was driving along this dark road and hit it suddenly with his right tyre and it burst immediately. He didn't see the pot hole as it was so dark. He burst his tyre and had to wait for the AA. I am concerned there may be a serious accident there soon as drivers swerve to avoid it the large, deep pothole.

  • The fix nearest to the bridge along this road towards Bulwick is deteriorating again with the new surface ( was this fixed adequately in the first place?), breaking up and causing a potential hazard to vehicles
