Back to all reports

There are a number of deep potholes on both sides of this road to Scothern. My car suffered a flat tyre and buckled wheel as a result of going into one whilst avoiding oncoming traffic on Sunday 17th May which will result in replacement items. I was travelling with my wife in the car at 30 mph and the time was 15:30.

Reported in the Pothole on road/cycleway category anonymously at 17:26, Sunday 17 May 2020

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 371404.

The particular pothole is located between Langworth and Scothern before the rail crossing between the farmers storage barn and the crossing. Mr car was parked in the entrance to the hay bale store as can be seen in the photo. The entire road is littered with ruts and potholes. Please inform me how I should claim for my repairs.
