Large pothole in road near to unofficial layby

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 20:13, Tuesday 18 February 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 2 minutes later. ref: 2007294.

I can see from previous entries that this problem has been ongoing since December 2019 Ref; 1901122 but because nothing has been done the pothole has got much bigger which has caused myself several other vehicles to damage tyres and bring us to a stop, calling the breakdown service to help us out. I am unable to provide photographs of the state of the road because it is dark and to dangerous to do so. I will provide these as soon as possible.
