  • I "discovered" this pothole at 10.02pm on Wednesday 28 August 2019. I went back the following morning and measured it. It is 120cm long and 35cm wide (photos attached). It must be at least 10cm deep throughout. It has been marked to establish the Council are aware but nothing has been done in the last 18 days. I obviously could not see any signs of the fading mark in the dark and the wet. It caused me to have 2 flat tyres which have now been replaced at the cost of £150 which I shall be claiming.
