Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5933192.

A line of potholes including one particular one around 7” deep and 20” wide. This has caused instant damage and puncture to my front nearside tyre. Whilst I was then stationary replacing wheel another four vehicles were stopped by owners to check for tyre damage.
