Potholes burst my tyre

Reported via desktop in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 21:15, Sunday 11 February 2024 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5563346.

Driving at night through Weldon these potholes could not be seen until it was too late and they burst my front driver side tyre. See receipt to replace the tyre. This happened on 18/1/24 and left me stranded in sun-zero temperatures, 7 miles from home. I would like to claim for compensation to reimburse the costs incurred. I can see that these had already been reported and so should have been coned off or fixed. I look forward to hearing from you soon. This is the second time I have sent a report in. Thanks Harry.

  • Hello

    Please can I have an update on my case, specifically in relation to my claim for compensation to cover the cost of having to replace a tyre - I attached a copy of the receipt to my original request. Regards Harry
