Potholes on Hayes Road - terrible road surface condition

Reported via mobile in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 22:38, Saturday 15 May 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2728409.

Riding my push bike up Hayes road I hit a pot hole and it threw me off my bike - i was lucky there was not a car coming. I will not bother to claim for damage because the company you use to deal with claims find any excuse not to pay out but i want to report as the next cyclist may end up under a car! This matter is urgent
