Pothole on the inside of the outer lane on the southern bridge.

Reported via desktop in the Pothole (NH) category anonymously at 20:18, Tue 3 October 2023

Sent to National Highways 1 minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5058677.

My car caught a pothole with its OSF tyre as I was not able to see the pothole due to the poor lighting on the southern bridge at J8 on the M11. I now have a warning light on my dashboard for my cars front airbags which was not there before my car's tyre hit the pothole. The pothole caused an almighty bang inside my car making me to pull over to check my cars wheels for damage.
