Travelling eastbound on A40 flyover in the left hand lane after the paddington exit
I was driving at the speed limit of 30mph (this is an average speed check zone) in the left hand lane when i hit a pothole causing my tyre to rupture. I called the police (crime ref no. CAD7291) as i feared i was a danger to cars driving past. While waiting for a recovery vehicle another car hit the same pothole and got a flat tyre and pulled up behind me. Police came and witnessed the rupture to the tyre. I had to get my vehicle recovered. I have since found out another car got a flat tyre from the same pothole 2 days before. the repair of these potholes is well overdue and i have had to pay for 2 new tyres and this has cost me 4 hours of my time. this was reported to Brent council (reference for this report is 2944448) i have videos that are too big to attach - these also showing the car that got a puncture on the same spot right after i did
