Two large deep potholes

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 15:24, Tuesday 21 January 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 2 minutes later. ref: 1952910.

Have been reporting these holes since Nov 18th, but for some reason from your reply today it's showing that you've looked at Washington Sq.Thes potholes are in Althorpe place. NN16 0LS. As I explained these need urgent attention before someone is seriously hurt or more damage to bicycles/cars is done. After my son snapped his bike frame & falling from his bicycle hitting one of these which at times are unavoidable due to how cars are parked on the other side of the close. These pictures are from Nov so not actually showing the content of these holes as they have deteriorated greatly since then. I explained in my previous communication there is also two disabled scooter riders live in the close, if they hit these they will be thrown off of them.
