Back to all reports

Massive pothole in the right hand lane, northbound, about 4 miles south of Thickthorn, approaching Ketteringham on the right hand side.

I hit the pothole with my front right wheel at 70mph with a back-jolting crash. I have very low profile wheels with virtually brand new tyres all round, replaced by BMW very recently. I now have a bulging, damaged front tyre, I have taken photos and will get it checked at the garage on Saturday. I notice that this pothole has already been reported, and you have a document about potholes on the road, suggesting you know that it is dangerous. BTW I don’t want to report anonymously as is the only option!

    Expect a compensation claim HE for a new tyre from me! As I now have a bulging sidewall and buckled wheel!
