Pothole on Plaistow Lane near Edward Rd & Willoughby Lane

Reported via desktop in the Road Defect category anonymously at 14:28, Sunday 12 March 2023 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4304016.

These potholes on Plaistow Lane (which are on the opposite side of the road to Edward Road and Willoughby Lane) have been here for a matter of months and on the morning of Wednesday 25th January 2023 my son hit one of them (please see attached photos) whilst on his motorcycle which caused him to lose control and hit another pothole which is in the middle of the road (photo also attached), which resulted him coming off his motorcycle completly into the path of an oncoming vehicle. This resulted in my Son's motorcycle being 'written off' as well as damage to the other car. Please arrange to repair all the potholes along this road. In light of this we would like to apply for compensation and ask that you advise how we move this forward please.
