  • Has caused major damage to my car! The Council were made aware on 19th Feb although have marked her case as closed despite no repair being made.. I have copy of her case email and reported myself following my incident caused by said pothole. Far from fixed

  • This pot hole was reported by others weeks before and no action was taken. I have details of cases that showed as closed even tho the pothole was still there and getting worse! Following my reported major damage they made a repair within 2 days. My car had to be recovered as it had damage suspension at 30mph and burst the tyre.

    State changed to: Fixed
