Cluster of potholes causing damage to my car

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category by Matthew Cooper at 15:40, Tuesday 4 February 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 6 minutes later. ref: 1978931.

5 large and deep potholes on the wellingborough road in Rushden, near the speed camera.

They have been there for a while now and are getting bigger, normally i try to go around them however with traffic on the other side of the road it was impossible to avoid, they have been marked up previously with white spray, however this is now very faint. This unfortunately resulted in my tyre getting split and my alloy rims being dented giving me a huge expense and making me late for my meeting.
