Sent to Highways England less than a minute later

I had just picked up my van from the garage, after having repairs made to my vehicle. I was approaching the bridge in the slow lane. On the left hand side of the lane, there is a pothole - which I couldn't avoid - and this has now caused more damage to my van.
