  • I have returned to this pothole that I reported 11 days ago. The size of it is 78cm in length x 57cm wide with a depth of 55-60mm. You can clearly see the sharp exit edge which caused the tyre to blowout.

  • My car has hit this pothole today 05/03/20 at 3pm on the school pick up and ripped my tyre. I’ve managed to get to a garage and have had to order a new tyre at £200 which is the cheapest for my type of car. Along this road there are many large pot holes and many cars are swinging into the other side of the road to avoid. This is a disgrace that they have been left like this. I’ll be going back to the scene this weekend to take photos.

  • The pothole, more like a crator in the road as you approach Cranford heading towards Kettering, caused the evidenced blowout of my tyre.

  • Thought I would share the wrecked tyre from my encounter with the pothole aka Cranford crater.
