Possible sinkhole emerging in road

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 12:20, Wednesday 8 April 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 6 minutes later. ref: 2083043.

Today for the first time I have noticed a dip in the road surface about 2 foot by 3 foot, to the nearside of the carriage way. Now the road surface dips down maybe 4 inches there and there is a small hole in the dip, about 6 inches. I use this road regularly and did not notice it last week. at the moment it is not a danger to other road users in it's current condition, but I am concerned about what is occurring under the road for this to appear as quickly as it has.
