  • I want to report that I hit the largest pothole today in my car with my offside front wheel. I had no choice but to drive towards it due to an oncoming LGV. The recent rains have opened one up significantly and it would take a motorcyclist clean off if it hit it. I am waiting for the weather to improve to inspect for any damage to my wheel or tyre!
