  • As the conditions were wet the pot hole was full of water. As a result it was impossible to know that the pothole existed and as a result I dropped into the pothole damaging my tyre beyond repair. As I have run flats I had to be towed to a local garage and have the tyre replaced at a cosy of £132.79 for which I will make a claim

  • I accidentally drove over this and burst my tyre as it was filled with water. Got the tyre fixed but still need to get my alignment fixed as it's now off on the tyre as a result. Missed half a day of work because of this.

  • This pot hole has caused damaged to my car, on the 17th Jan it was dark and full of water it’s burst my tyre that in need to get repaired and my alignment checked, on 15th your inspector said the pot hole was fine, how can a pot hole that’s 44” long, 13 1/2” wide and 5” deep be acceptable? I will be pursuing a claim.
