A43 After Walgrave turning, towards Northampton

Reported via desktop in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 09:56, Thursday 20 January 2022

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3253957.

This looks like a previous repair, which is viewable on Google Earth street view. The screenshots are from my dash cam as I'm unable to drive my car since the wheel no longer holds air. Checking my dash cam from my journey the opposite direction (also attached) it looks like the repair was still in tact, so must have collapsed during the day.

The exact location is 52°21′4.24″N by 0°47′22.72″W

I dread to think how many people have hit this as it made me thing my front suspension had collapsed!
