There is a massive and very dangerous pothole on the first lane eastbound M4 at junction 5. I have seen cars having to serve last minute to avoid hitting it which is potentially dangerous and could cause an accident

  • Huge pothole on the inside lane drivers side . At least 5 vehicles parked just before the slip road onto the motorway with damaged tyres having hit it. Very dangerous!
