Deep pothole

Reported via mobile in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 15:00, Wednesday 26 January 2022

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3268867.

I was driving through Alderton on Pury Road, there is many potholes along that road which haven’t been done. Today I have just had to take it to the garage to pay £134 for a new tyre due to the pothole which I could not avoid due to a large vehicle coming the opposite direction. To avoid any collision I had to pull hard to the near side of the road which then caused me to go into the pothole. Which then caused damage to my type, which then causing an out-of pocket expense of £134 to replace the damage tyre caused. Therefore holding the council are responsible for the poor road service that has caused damage to my vehicle. I wish to submit a claim of £134 please.
