Substantial pothole on B571 between Wellingborough and Irthlingborough heading from Wellingborough to Irthlingborough

Reported via mobile in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 17:29, Sat 12 December 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2429154.

On the evening of Friday 11th December 2020 at approx 19:15 I was travelling from Wellingborough to Rushden via the Irthlingborough Road (B571) here I hit the pothole (pictures provided) which has caused substantial damage to the underside of my vehicle which I will now need to pay to get repaired. This road is unlit so the possibility of a collision with a pothole is high. Totally unacceptable that this has been left in this condition and it is extremely dangerous!
