Sent to National Highways less than a minute later

Large pot hole between fast lane and middle lane, has caused my tyre to blow out as it has bent the inside of the wheel. Unrepairable and will be making a claim for this. Just don't want it happening to anybody else. It happened at 6.00 pm on a Tuesday night, peak time and 3 police vehicles passed, not one stopped to see if I was okay. Had to move to the hard shoulder for safety.
