Huge pothole , very deep has ripped through tyre (twice in 24 hrs)

Reported via mobile in the Potholes / Highway Condition category by Kate Adams at 11:01, Tue 2 February 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2518535.

This pothole has now been temporarily filled and some others patched up when I went to photograph it in the light 1/2/21 but due to its location with no street light and with the wet weather filling in the large hole it was not possible to spot. Plus the camber of the road which is very arched means puddles etc on the side of the road aren’t uncommon. On Friday and saturday evening I burst two new tyres (on the same wheel front left hand side twice) in succession - driving this way after dropping essentials to a poorly family member on mill road. Following the snow and ice the poor condition of this road clearly has become much worse, but as it’s not a route I take in the daytime or often I was unaware of the issue until it was too late.
