Reported via mobile in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 06:14, Wednesday 5 May 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2707132.

The pothole has been there for months now, and although already reported, the damage is getting worse and starting to cause damage to cars. 26 weeks to get this fixed is not acceptable, this is urgent as it is causing damage. It is on the corner of the Green at the bottom of Furnace Lane next to the hairdressers. This road serves the only village bus route too. Can this please be reassessed and placed on a more urgent priority!
