Massive pothole 130cm long, 20cm deep on A428 from Crick to Houlton

Reported via mobile in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 11:38, Friday 18 June 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2801013.

We hit this pothole last night causing damage to an alloy wheel and an instant flat tyre. I photographed the pothole this morning and it has yellow markings around it, presumably for repair. This should have been done within 24 hours, this pothole is lethal.
