Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5871750.

Large pothole (estimated around 7 - 10 inches diameter) on slip-road towards the motorway.

Hole is large enough for some vehicles to try and avoid it while joining the M5, which could cause an accident.

  • This pothole is larger enough to damage a car. I hit this pothole and it pierced a hole in my gear box and now my car is not driveable. This caused me to break down on the side of the M5 and have to be towed.
