Large / deep pothole in middle of the road at traffic lights

Reported via mobile in the Pothole (minor) category anonymously at 10:33, Sat 30 October 2021

Sent to TfL 1 minute later. TfL ref: FMS3092940.

I came off my bicycle after hitting a pothole at Lea Bridge Roundabout on my way home last night. As it was dark and there were cars at the traffic lights (which were in the process of changing as I approached from red to green) I did not see the hole until I had hit it and it had thrown me forward off my seat and into my handlebars. Luckily I managed to stop myself and my bike from completely falling to the ground, jarring my wrist in the process, in amongst moving traffic but I fear other people may be endangered by this obstruction. It is on the Madina Mosque junction coming from Lea Bridge Road I believe in the middle of the 3 lanes but as it was dark and I was a little shook up by what had happened and the traffic around me, I did not investigate further or take photos. Please could it be attended to as a matter of urgency?
