  • Needs to be fixed before causing damage to a vehicle. Very dangerous pothole in a bad position. If causes puncture it will be difficult for driver to control vehicle

  • My wife hit this pothole earlier and burst a tyre, now waiting for recovery. It is in a dangerous place as reported previously and almost impossible to see or avoid in the dark.

  • Hit this "pothole" on Christmas day, landing us with a flat tyre. Just what you want! Clearly been repaired at some point - very badly though!

    Total cost to me - £160 for a new tyre (to replace one that had only done 4000 miles) and £50 to do 4 wheel alignment as the tracking was now out (only done 3 months prior)

    Absolutely not acceptable, especially as it had been reported 2 weeks before it damaged my car.

  • Just cost over £240 for new tyre and awaiting quote to repair damage to front and rear alloy wheels - given road width it is not possible to avoid this pothole without swerving into centre of the road.

  • Pothole not fixed, number of other motorist have damaged vehicle very slow in fixing, surely its cost effective to fix the pothole rather than payout for damage to cars.
