  • On 8th August 2021 at approximately 23:50hrs I was heading west on the Westway (A40) just before the Royal oak ( Porchester joint to the Westway A40) I felt an loud bang from my front driver side wheel after being dislodged from what appeared to be a very deep pothole in the centre lane. There appeared to be other vehicles pulled up in the hard shoulder nearby. This section of the A40 is not well lite and is extremely busy so it was not practical or safe to take a picture. can you please send any info on how to make claim for the damage has happen to my car
