  • Christmas eve at around 10:30pm I hit the pothole on image today and had to be collected via AA and in turn waited 4 hours. I expect to be refunded for the tyre and fitting and as a motorcycle rider these pot holes are killers especially at 70mph.

  • More images the whole road needs relaying. So dangerous at night with no road lighting and suddenly your car hits pothole. 2 degrees at night trying to sort out recovery. The damage that you can see through the pictures but it's what cant be seen suspension damage, tracking, alloy wheel bent ect that these pot holes cause. Will expect a phone call or email and full compensation for the damaged caused.
