  • I would like to claim for a new tyre which I have had to purchase as a result of driving through the unmarked pothole/raised drain on Barton Rd in Kettering. The cost of this was £59. Invoice and photo of the pothole attached. The incident occurred at 9pm on 21st February, I have come back to photograph at midday on the 22nd Feb when the issue has now been fixed but the damage had already occurred to my vehicle.
