Very dangerous pothole

Reported via desktop in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 14:07, Friday 15 October 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3064551.

Outside A J Jones, St Andrews Road, there is a very large hole in the road, the kerb has gone and the path is unsafe for people to walk on. The problem is made worse by the fact that all the water from the car wash next door in the truck stop runs out into the road as there is obviously no drainage for this water. This is very dangerous for cyclists, motorcyclists and pedestrians and also cars that swerve to miss it into the opposite lane. This needs to be rectified immediately before there is an accident or fatality.
