Massive pothole still unresolved despite numerous reports on it. Its at least 2 feet wide and deep enough that it comes to my ankle if you stand in it! Blew out my tyre and damaged wheel, steering and suspension. I was one of about 5 cars this morning with a flat because of this...though told by several members of staff from seabank power that its taken dozens of cars out in the last few weeks. Has cost me a day's wages and huge cost to repair. I will be placing a claim with BCC.
