Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3079554.

Various potholes on school lane from the junction with high street all the way to the school building. I have hit one this morning on my to Sainsbury’s and my car has been damaged to the value to £350 - broken front drivers spring and front wheel tracking totally knocked out - which I will be claiming back from the council once I have the receipt for the work done!! What’s the point of having nice cars when you can’t drive them safely on roads - very annoyed!!
