Very poor road condition

Reported via iOS in the Potholes / Highway Condition category by Nigel Banister at 20:06, Fri 26 November 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3145944.

All down Festival Road and left and right on Leys Road and also down Blacksmiths Close, the top tarmac surface has worn away or lifted and deteriorated, exposing what looks like concrete below. It has become difficult to drive on and even to walk on as you cross the road. The photo I have taken was in the evening but it is typical of the many damaged parts of the surface.
