Has also altered my steering tracking..

I hit this pothole on the way to work this morning. The hole is deep and is near the entrance to Knuston Hall on the road between rushden and irchester . It was very dark as I travel at 06.00 am in the morning so I couldn't see it. It has shredded my drivers side front tire. It would kill a motorcyclist. Date is 07/10/20

Pothole has been marked for repair for a number of days now, still nothing has been done. Not easy to see it in the dark, as I found out this evening.
Any damage to my vehicle and I shall be sending NCC the Bill!

Hit this tonight with big wheels and big tyres but the impact was severe enough to pull me across the road! Could have been very nasty with oncoming traffic. Needs to be filled before someone gets hurt.

I would agree with all previous comments on this pothole. It is very large and dangerous, especially in the dark and wet. I hit it coming back from work last night in the rain and as the first comment says could have easily been that motorcyclist, please repair asap.
