Long and deep pothole that has been here for months

This pothole has been here for months. The area where the pothole is has been subsiding for years, but it's never been properly fixed. The council were told about the pothole several months ago, but they just stuck traffic cones next to it instead of fixing it. The lane is too narrow to drive a vehicle down it without going into the pothole and it's easy to ground your car in it. The binmen drove over the traffic cones this week because there isn't enough room to avoid them. Unfortunately, there weren't enough traffic cones to fill the hole. The hole is deeper than it looks in the photo because the road is curved.
