Big deep Pothole on A43

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 16:04, Saturday 18 January 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 1 minute later. ref: 1946915.

It wasn’t safe for me to sip and take the photos as there were cars behind my car.

There is a big pothole on A43 from Kettering towards Northampton after passing sywell roundabout towards going to Moulton just before the new small roundabout.

My car had hit the pothole and it’s the hire car from Thrifty while my car is being fixed.

My car has got front passenger front flat damaged tyre because of this massive pothole and has caused damage to the wheel and I had to pay for this damage to be fixed, repaired and replaced.

I travel everyday on this road and this hasn’t happened to me first time on this road. It had happened to my car twice in the past and I never claimed for it. But this time the council have to pay for the repairs I had to pay as it’s hire car and costs a lot of money which I can’t afford just because of massive pothole.

I have attached some photos of the damaged tyre for your consideration.

I look forward to hear from you as soon as possible in my favour please.

Best Regards, Dhaval Gosaliya
