Sent to Highways England less than a minute later

On Mon5th April at approx 18.40 i hit a pothole at the above location (inside lane, nearest hard shoulder). Soon after I lost power and had to pull on to hard shoulder as I realised I had a puncture. I telephoned the AA from SOS phone area, I think this was number 1205A. The cost of repair to the wheel was £72. (I have receipt and also picture of car on hard shoulder). When I travelled the same route today, 17/04/21, I was exceedingly cautious - luckily so as the pothole is still there. Please can you send me a form to claim for the repair which has been caused by this section of motorway not being kept in good state of repair which could be very dangerous.
