Huge Hole

Reported via desktop in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 23:55, Tuesday 16 February 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2551056.

As the pictures show there is a huge badger (or another animal) hole that has been dug right by the side of the road.

It is extremely hard to spot when driving especially in the dark and if a car where to run over it it is large enough that a wheel will sink into the hole and it will cause significant damage to the car.

Needs infilling and tarmacking on top ASAP
