Extremely large pothole causing flat tyre

Reported via mobile in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 21:15, Tuesday 24 January 2023

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 4167575.

Extremely large/deep pothole going from Cranford St Andrew to the Geddington/Warkton crossroads. Due to oncoming traffic was unavoidable causing me to hit the hole and cause flat tyre. Very dangerous. I drive this road home every weekday from work and its got very big very quickly with the recent weather. Unable to take photo of hole as continued slowly to safer place to stop and change tyre in below freezing temperatures and the road was completely dark as its a unlit country road. There are also numerous other potholes along this stretch of road nearer the verges.
