13" diameter pothole

Reported via desktop in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 12:32, Tue 17 November 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2391996.

This pothole is in direct line with vehicles entering and leaving the village for which there is very little room to manouvre past them due to parked cars. It is directly opposite number 27 Deanshanger Road, Wicken. This section of the road has been liable to potholing for quite a few years now and has been rectified on numerous occasions but the repairs that have been undertaken don't seem to be sealed each time therefore water gets underneath causing the tar to be dispersed time and again. I have tried filling the hole with loose gravel to reduce the damage that may be caused to vehicles but this doesn't last long as you can imagine
