Very large dangerous pothole.

Reported in the Pothole category by Dominic Winter at 16:31, Tuesday 21 January 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Very large pothole here. I drove over it on Sunday 19th, was impossible to avoid as there was a car turning right into Newton Leys. This caused a blowout of my front left tyre. I have a dashcam video of this happening and can supply this on request.

This made for a very tricky drive home as the tyre was so badly damaged that even tyre sealent wouldn't fix it.

This needs fixing asap or there could be a very nasty accident at that junction due to people swerving to avoid it.
