Large pothole on flyover bust my tyre and other vehicle

Reported via desktop in the Pothole category anonymously at 17:30, Thu 29 December 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS4066830.

I was driving in the morning at 30mph, it was quite dark and there are no lights or lamp posts. As I was driving, my front right tyre fell into the pothole and burst. I had to get off the highway to stop and change my tyre on Cosway street. As I got off the highway there was another person also changing his tyre, his car was also damaged by the pothole.
