Large, deep pothole on the left side as you enter Littlecote from Stewkley. I hit this on Saturday morning 17th October causing my tyre to blow out, immediately deflate and damage to my alloy wheel. Very dangerous and lucky not to have caused a traffic accident

Reported via desktop in the Pothole category anonymously at 07:52, Saturday 17 October 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

The hole is significant, estimate over 30 cm long and 10cm deep. I was travelling from Stewkley to Littlecote and had no chance to avid the pothole. It is in a dangerous position and clearly causing damage to cars.

  • Additional picture shows tyre with 5cm split in side wall. £163 to replace. Assume compensation is highly unlikely. ☹️

  • It’s bigger than I thought and all the way down to the base layer. Be careful this could catch you out.
