Pothole not visible due to area not being lit.

Sent to Bristol City Council 1 minute later

I am not happy. Driving down ladies mile at 8:15pm last night, going the speed limit. Cannot put my fill beams on due to oncoming traffic. Hit a MASSIVE pothole and now I have had to fork out for a new wheel because the pothole was so large it damaged the actual wheel of the car. I don't appreciate having to pay £200 for something that wasn't my fault and should have been prevented. Is there any kind of compensation the council can provide for this? I don't expect to be driving down an unlit area and not be able to see oncoming potholes.
