One foot pothole on Lower Road opposite BT telephone pole west of Meadow Cottage.

Reported via desktop in the Pothole In CW/FW category anonymously at 18:54, Sunday 29 January 2023

Sent to Island Roads 19 hours, 9 minutes later. Enquiry ref: 16235279.

The pothole has appeared this month following the freezing weather as a result of water flowing down southern side of road. There is only room between the pothole and the northern road side for a normal car. The pothole is therefore repeatedly subject to the passage of lorries and farm vehicles which are digging the hole deeper and broader.
