Huge Pothole

Reported via desktop in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 10:07, Tue 15 December 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2432577.

There is a huge pothole on the A43 towards Towcester near the Silverstone turn off. This road is poorly lit and I hit this last night at 9pm travelling at approx 50 m ph and my car completely crunched. In all my 47 years of driving I have never hit such a huge dangerous hole. Had I been on a Scooter or Motorbike it could have been very serious.
