This is a really dangerous pothole, full of water and needs fixing urgently. It’s opposite the post box - can’t be missed!

  • Monday the 23rd of November I drove over this hazard which had previously been signed with a large road cone. The cone was not in place on the Monday when my vehicle suddenly hit the hole with a loud noise. I stopped the vehicle at the end of the road by the park gates to look because it felt like a tyre had gone soft. No sign of tyre damage so i drove to my destination which was National Tyres in Gloucester for a pre-booked MOT and front tyres replacement. My vehicle failed the MOT because of a broken coli spring which is why the drive felt different. I thought after such a long time being high lighted by the road cone that this hole would have been fixed. It is hard to see in the morning sun when it is filled with water. My vehicle is now booked in for a new coil replacement and a MOTre-test. I would like to make a claim for this damage. Nigel Giltrow, Milton under Wychwood
