Deep pothole with very sharp edge.

This pothole is just over the brow of a hill, so when approaching, it is not visible. Making it near impossible to miss as the road is quite narrow and poorly lit. It has a very sharp, hard edge. Even when driving the speed limit, the impact of my tyre hitting the hole caused the tyre to burst.

Council ref: ENQ20863277

  • The damage caused to my tyre could not be fixed, a full tyre replacement was needed. Costing £102, I am looking for compensation of this amount.
