The pothole has be there for around 2-3 months on Hendre Farm Road. The pot hole is just after a speed bump which makes drivers drive in the middle of the road where the pot hole is.

The pot hole is on a hill so drivers coming UP the hill cannot visibly see it.

It was a wet rainy day so the pot hole was not visibly and was going UP the hill.

My car front driver wheel went into the pot hole causing the tyre to blow.

I have now called the RAC with a minimum wait of 3 hours leading to me having to call into work late to stay at home and wait for RAC to tow the vehicle to a garage to get a new tyre.
