claim form received - Pothole - was driving along Mill lane on the 26 th March 2021.Heading from South Witham towards the t junction leading to either Thistleton or Sewstern.The weather was dry and visibility good.A vehicle came towards me on its side of the road and I obviously was on my side of the road.I was travelling at approximately 50 miles per hour following a van at a safe distance.
I heard a huge bang and felt my car judder and realised there was a pothole and I had hit it.
I stopped and photographed the hole and checked my car.As you can see from the photo my tyre had a bulge in it and I returned home. My car being unsafe to drive,I changed the wheel to my spare and had to get a replacement tyre.
