Huge deep pothole between farm junction and a5 on the road to/from Daventry. It is farm entrance size and is getting very deep now. When it rains you can't see it if it fills up please fix ASAP as fed up of others crossing the white line when they see it at the last minute

  • This hole is huge. Approx 900 x 600 x 110mm. It has been marked with white paint but this is fading and looks to have been there a while. I hit it ( as I had no alternative as a car was coming the other way, and it caused damage to my 4x4. If a small car or a bike hits this it could be very dangerous.
