Deep pothole on A46 southbound carriageway outside lane - A46 just past Six Hills

Reported via desktop in the Pothole (NH) category anonymously at 19:28, Fri 26 May 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4601225.

I hit a deep pothole at this location on evening of 14th May - loud bang from both nearside wheels - stopped at next layby to check for suspension damage. I previously reported using Leicestershire County Council site but they have got back to me to say that they do not own or maintain A46 and that I should report to National Highways.

Due to it being a busy dual carriageway, it was not possible to photograph the pothole or get precise location, but approximately lat/long 52.775986, -1.049010, just south of Six Hills service station.
