Dropped/sunken kerb and pothole near houses on corner

Reported via mobile in the Damaged/Loose category anonymously at 00:06, Sunday 19 November 2023

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 5228233.

I was driving in the dark with my two young children when a large lorry come towards me. I moved over to avoid being hit by the lorry as they were on my side of the road. My tyre went down the pothole which has been created by a dropped/sunken kerb and drain, probably from all the floods. My tyre ended up bursting from the impact of going down it, which resulted in me paying out £150 for a new tyre. The pothole is difficult to see as on the corner and has not been painted around for drivers to see.
