More crater than pothole

Reported via mobile in the Pothole (NH) category by Mark Blythe at 19:41, Tue 11 April 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4426710.

I cannot believe after £848 million pounds that this is the case

Smart motorway?? Well hitting that at 70 mph wasn't a smart idea.

M4 lane 1 travelling west over junction 5

Please sort it ASAP before some serious accident happens.
