Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 3 minutes later. ref: 2047606.

This pothole has been reported several time and even featured in the Telegraph newspaper in February. It cannot be seen easily, is in the normal wheel track for vehicles and has wrecked a tyre and possibly the alloy rim as well. A person living in Levatts Way where I changed the wheel commented that they have helped a nunber of people who had to stop in that road to change wheels.
