6/8 inch pothole on the dual carriage way of Watford way outside the storage company on the a41

Reported via mobile in the Pothole category anonymously at 08:36, Thu 16 December 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3183078.

Driving at 30mph having just exited the roundabout This very large pothole could cause a major accident . With my son as a passenger this could have been fatal . My tyre popped and burst causing me to lose momentarily lose control of the car. I then had to have an emergency tyre company out to change the wheel so we could get home . This cost me £375 this should have been fixed as a priority or closed off so to not cause any accident or situation I had . I would like to think I will be compensated for the cost of the tyre
