Large pothole arising from the cracking of an area of tarmac covering a metal cover. Location - right next to bust stop SC on Battersea Rise

Reported in the Pothole (minor) category anonymously at 14:36, Monday 9 March 2020

Sent to TfL 9 minutes later. TfL ref: FMS2050129.

This pothole has appeared in the last few days - I notice it as I cycle past often. I reported a pothole at the exact same place a year ago or so. At that time the metal cover was exposed and a large hole had appeared in the tarmac next to it. The repair looked like someone had dumped a crude layer of tarmac over the whole thing including the metal cover. The picture shows what has now happened to that sloppy repair.
