Massive pothole on A45 as you leave Daventry to Northampton

Reported via desktop in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 13:03, Saturday 23 January 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2496873.

The pot hole is located on the A45 between the first and second farm as you leave Daventry (just round the bend) heading towards Northampton.

It appears this pot hole has already been reported and nothing has been done about it. Its massive and has clearly already caused damage to vehicles. If it doesnt get fixed soon it will cause an accident (especially vulnerable to motorcyclists).
