This ground water has never happened in the last 60 years and I am told by TWA. who have come out twice now. and tested that it is not a burst water main. By testing the chlorine content of which there is none. Confirms to them that it is ground water, TWA have told me the only way to stop the ground water from welling up to the surface is to completely resurface the road to seal it. !!

  • On Monday 15th February at 06:10 in the morning, I hit this pot hole on my cycle and went over the handle bars, impacting the road face first. I have suffered extensive laceration’s to my face including a cut that required 15 stitches. The pothole covers the whole of one side of the road, is full of water, and is 3.5 -4 inches deep. My helmet was cracked in half, the only thing that prevented more serious injury or death.
