  • I did not visually see any sign of pothole in the pitch black at 18:20 last night. However, I hit a large pothole which immediately burst my tyre and appears to have damaged the alloy. The road was busy and I was unable to safely stop to take pictures, I believe this was the same location as this report. This is extremely dangerous. I had to reduce to 10mph driving on a completely flat tyre until it was safe to pull over which has most likely caused further damage to my vehicle.
