11ft long pot whole 3ft wide 8 inch deep

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 21:14, Wednesday 12 February 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 1 minute later. ref: 1995014.

This pothole has been here long enough to be captured on google maps. It is alot worse now as can be seen by the images attached. On Monday evening I was in my car driving home from work at around 5pm at 48mph when I hit this pothole, flew in the air and caused my tyre to burst and damaged the rim so it is unrepairable and I have to go through my insurance to fix it. I have also lost 3 days (possibly more) work as I need my car to get to work. I also had to call the RAC to help me get home as I live in Birmingham and had a burst tyre due to this pothole. The pothole is located on a country lane off Stubbs Road approx postcode NN12 8HD, the actual road does not appear to have a name or post code.
