My wife hit this pothole in the dark this morning resulting in puncture. she made her way to work on TVTE where she found tyre flat. On my way down to the Team Valley to attend to the car I saw a Micra parked in bus stop just after the pothole with an elderly man examining the from nearside of his car, and sure enough he too had hit the pothole. The hole is approx 100 yards north of the Lamely road/Smithy Lane roundabout on the northbound. It cost us a new tyre.
