The potholes have been there for over two months and are now very dangerous.An accident is almost certainly about to happen.All the potholes are big enough and deep enough to qualify for a claim should car or bicycle be damaged as a result of going in one if the potholes.This matter is very serious and needs urgent attention.The holes are so dangerous that we in the village are considering filling them with rubble ourselves.A reply would be appreciated.
