Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

Previous attempts to repair this hole have clearly failed. The road has no street lights and in the dark at 7.20am on 21st January 2021 I drove into the hole, smashing up my front tyre and wheel causing steering and suspension damage. It is a potential death trap for any motor bike rider or cyclist.
