Pothole westbound still there despite repeated reports

Reported via mobile in the Pothole (NH) category anonymously at 12:00, Friday 23 February 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5619912.

Despite numerous reports about the pothole outside Longlea House and an email confirming this had been repaired on 21/02/24, it looks like you sent Stevie Wonder out to repair it - why only fill part of the hole and still leave a smaller 6" deep hole as a danger to road users? Did you run out of tarmac on the way home? Get it sorted before there is an accident
