Pothole in bus lane outside Lidl on Old Kent Road

Reported via mobile in the Pothole (minor) category anonymously at 13:51, Thursday 25 November 2021

Sent to TfL 4 minutes later. TfL ref: FMS3143559.

Pothole has been here for at least 4 months and looks to have been attempted to have been filled in before, however it is still an issue. I was cycling yesterday and hit this pothole. I fell off my bike and ended up in A&E. I am very cut, bruised and have a broken rib. Luckily it happened early so there was little other traffic on the rode, however it could have been a lot worse. Picture attached shows my cracked helmet.
