V dangerous pothole approaching J6, M4 westbound, inside lane

Reported via mobile in the Pothole (NH) category anonymously at 07:50, Mon 3 April 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4390151.

There is an EXTREMELY dangerous pothole on M4 westbound, approaching Junction 6 (a few miles before) on the inside lane. In 17 years of driving, it is by far the worst pothole I have hit on a motorway. I was very lucky it didn't damage my car. But in the next mile or two, I saw at least 6 cars pulled up with flat tyres. Please sort as a matter of urgency. It could kill someone and will continue to wreck tyres. I hit it late on Friday evening.
