I was driving towards Hodgemore Woods car park at 7:30 on Wednesday evening. As you are aware the roads are narrow and therefore my speed was less than 30mph. I hit a pot hole that was full of water at the left hand side of the road, due to the depth of the pot hole both my passenger side front and back tyres were ripped and the trim was also dented. The force of the impact affected my steering column. The car was undrivable! I luckily was able to stop my car safely in a lay-by a little further down and had to leave it there overnight. I had to get a tow truck to take my car the following morning to a tyre repair shop in Beaconsfield and my bill so far has been £129.40. I am still waiting for the fee for the tow truck. I look forward to your response and comments on this matter.
