Last night (18.05.2021) I hit this pothole and lost control of the vehicle, thankfully I managed to correct the loss of control but it severely shook me up and caused pains in my neck. I drove along today to see what I hit and it is a significant crater longitudinal and wide. the road surface and binder course where it has fairly recently been replaced has failed along its edges parallel and perpendicular to the road between lane 1 and 2. thankfully I was able to correct the loss of control but had to pull off at the services as i was severely shaken and in pain. Please can this section of road be reviewed at the earliest opportunity prior to their being a significant accident or incident.
