Damage to road, 6 ft long 14-16 inches wide and 3-4 inches deep

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category by John Charles-Hollis at 15:02, Wednesday 3 June 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2140908.

This has been here for a couple of months now getting gradually further eroded. There are a large number of cyclists using this road and I know of 2 in the last 2 weeks that have hit this hole hard, luckily only causing a puncture, but nearly causing an accident. There is the possibility of falling into the path of incoming traffic. I believe the debris has blocked the drain as well which is subsequently causing flooding over the road whenever we get a good downpour.
