  • I hit this pothole at 70mph on the 29th of May 1921, the nose was very loud from the front and back drivers’ side of the car I thought it had burst the tyre, and it nearly pulled the steering wheel out of my hand. My car has developed a nose from the front wheel, and I can feel a wobbling from the back wheel have booked in for garage to assess the damage.

  • I hit this hole last night Thursday at 10pm. Huge bang but luckily I was in a van with big wheels. The next layby there were 2 cars parked up with punctures.

  • 4th June 9.08 just hit this pothole. Made a huge bang noise as we drove over it. Location as described above. Not surprised other people are reporting damage. We will be keeping an eye on our car and tyres for any damage. Needs fixing as a priority as not visible and right in the drivers side line of travel.
