Deep dangerous Pothole

Reported via mobile in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 16:41, Fri 11 December 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2427994.

Dangerous pothole/gap in road surface located down Orlingbury road, just outside Pytchley village coming down the hill before the first right hand bend, located on the RH side of the road. Travelling at less than 15mph hit this hole, in the evening of 10/12/20 - which has caused damage to both NS wheels on my car and a replacement tyre after damaging the tyre wall. Road has no lighting and hole can not be seen while travelling in the early evenings, especially after having to quickly take excessive action to avoid another motorist. This needs repairing so others don’t catch their vehicles on it.
