Two potholes directly on the driving line when entering the M62Easstbound. This caused a blow out and damaged rim to my vehicle. Managed to pull off at Rainhill junction to get RAC assistance. New tyre fitted at a cost of £140 and damaged cause to alloys( new replacement could cost up to £400. How to I get compensation for this Ps I noticed other vehicles parked on the hard shoulder the next day slightly past this point with flat tyres also.
