Road subsiding

Reported via mobile in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 18:46, Tue 29 June 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2827625.

It is now very dangerous to road users as it is so deep now it throws you into oncoming traffic. Even to the untrained eye it is visibly sinking. As I have lived on the village for many years I can remember when the road collapsed the last time it was closed for months. As I previously asked last time under the freedom of information act can you please send me your reports and measurements over the last few months since it was reported.
