Vehicle Damage

Reported via Android in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 11:28, Tuesday 11 August 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2240050.

Yesterday I drove into Manor Farm to access the farm workshop and on doing so I was waved through by the highways construction workers that are currently working in the high street. They had repaired numerous potholes along church lane with tarmac however it had literally just been laid and has ruined all four of my tyres!! It was so heavily impacted that it rendered the vehicle unsafe to drive due to the vibrations caused by the imbalance. I had to return home and spent the best part of four hours digging it out as best as I could!! My tyres are £200 each for a 4x4 with a very deep all terrain tread as pictured. I am furious and would like to be compensated accordingly for the damage

  • For info regarding the onsite inspection. As you can see from the original photos attached to the report there are no current defects as such because the potholes have been filled with asphalt!! And it's the hot freshly laid asphalt that caused the damage to my tyres by allowing access over it when it had literally just been laid blocked up the tyre treads and rendering the vehicle unsafe to drive.
