Very dangerous pothole for cyclists, serious accident waiting to happen

Reported via desktop in the Potholes / Highway Condition category by Noel Toone at 07:24, Fri 11 June 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2784077.

The photos make this issue very clear. I haven't got time to report every serious defect I come across but if it's on a route I'm like to ride in the dark or as in this case there is a cycling event due to use this road in 2 weeks time then it's important enough to require urgent attention. This is one of 3 huge holes on this stretch or road along with at least 2 others (less deep) with faded yellow paint around them.
