  • Pothole has been filled but has instantly disintegrated leaving large rubble that if flicked up by HGV traffic which is very heavy in the area could cause serious injury to pedestrians. Also very real danger for motorcyclists. Would suggest immediate attention.

  • I reported this 'Trench' across the road, the whole width of the carriageway, last year. The council replied that the pothole/trench was not serious enough to warrant attention. Since then the problem has got worse. There is no way to avoid it so it is very dangerous for cyclists and cars.
