Pothole large and verge collapsing

Reported via mobile in the Collapsed verge category anonymously at 12:57, Sat 18 March 2023

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 451699.

Council land there is a large pothole, which is dangerous if kids trip and verge is collapsing as it’s a footpath. I have seen one person fall. Cars cut the corner which has caused the issue. Needs to be filled in with sand but best option extend the footpath and tarmac all round for a safe walkway for all children and residents. I worry as kids have starting playing in the puddle with wellies and if a car cuts the corner when they’re playing in it they will get hit. The issue has been present for 2 years but it’s getting worse due to traffic has increased in the area.
