Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 3 minutes later. ref: 2075780.

Two large indents in carriageway travelling direction towards Wellingborough just before the slip road to Redhill Grange. These indents are a car's width apart on a busy main road so you cannot avoid them. We went down them and the impact felt was like hitting a kerb. Checked car front tyres the following day and offside tyre had lost 4 lbs and nearside tyre had lost 6lbs due to the hard impact. (tyre pressures has only been check recently and we only do 2K miles pa so not high mileage) so loss of pressure almost certainly due to the impact. These indents do not look mega at first glance but the impact to our car was very hard and could cause damage to vehicles and passengers.
