  • Hello,

    Still waiting for a response in regard to my question of paying for the cost of a new tyre? Or are you just ignoring me hoping I’ll forget? I won’t forget and would appreciated some contact as have none so far.

  • No payout, NCC say this road is inspected every 6 months. Last inspected Dec 19, so they are covered and I and others have no claim! Shocking
