  • Large pothole has made my tyre bulge when I hit it on the A43. The pothole is deep but I was unable to take a photo of the pothole as this is a busy road at it happened at 16.10 which is rush hour. I will be expecting compensation for a replacement tyre and also replacing the alloy wheel if it is damaged as I can see this isn’t the first time the defect has been reported but you are yet to act upon it.

  • My daughter also damaged her tyre driving this road in the dark last week and hitting a very large pot hole. She has had to replace her tyre which was only 4 months old. Do you pay any compensation?
