Large deep pothole which will cause vehicle damage

Reported via mobile in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 16:11, Mon 1 February 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2516892.

The pothole is roughly between 30cm and 90cm from the road, no option to avoid without crossing the carriageway, no advanced warning of pothole. I’ve noticed this has been reported before, and not repaired within a reasonable amount of time. My car is being serviced tomorrow, and if they identify warping or damage to either of my near side alloys or Tyre damage then I will be forwarding the bill to yourselves. You have had more than enough time to repair this, and have blatantly ignored residents concerns.
