This pothole is a ridiculous size and could cause some damage to cars as it is hard to miss due to being in line with car tyres. impossible to see when its dark or has been raining. i have driven through this and took photos as i am concerned about the damage it could have caused to my car. i will be claiming for this

  • This pothole is now even bigger and is restricting access to the driveway of the property it is in front of. It is still flicking up stones and debris and could cause damage to vehicles on the driveway and to pedestrians as the cars cannot see it and are driving at 30+ mph. THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE It is now big enough for an average sized car wheel to get stuck in it if incorrectly manoeuvred.

  • It is becoming more difficult to get off the driveway of the house this is now spreading into. My car ended up in this pot hole this evening nearly taking my bumper off my 68 plate car when I tried to get off the driveway!! You have to go onto the other side of the road into oncoming traffic to get round the hole which is dangerous! So it’s a choice of hit a car or bottom the car out. It should’ve been fixed long before it became an issue like this. Debris is all over the footpath and driveway and is causing splashes of muddy and dirty and stones to hit the cars on the driveway. If this causes damage to my vehicle or any long term issues that could of been avoided by a more print repair I will be claiming for repairs from you. This is NOT what I pay road tax for!
