It was taken at 14 hrs 19 mins 42 secs on Saturday 18th January.2020 the next day. I went to the site again on Sunday 19th at a similar time to find the hole had been filled in as had many others that that were along the the very edge of the road. The cost of a new wheel is £ 380 approx. However I did manage to get it repaired for £96, and a new tyre at £141,89 making a bill of £237.89p. Plus £50 for a 4 wheel tracking. All include VAT at 20%. so a total bill at £287.89p. I will send pictures of the bills when I can. On the Friday of the accident I had to wait nearly 3 hours for the RAC to rescue me. A friend in my village of King's Sutton on hearing of my plight brought out to me a duvet and blanket and a flask of hot soup. A great act of kindness. David Hall.
