Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS4118081.
Hit the pothole today in lane two heading south bound - very loud bang to the car. Picture attached of previous patch repair. Section could do with resurfacing as this seems to be a re-occurring issue every winter.

I have also hit this pothole today in lane two heading south bound - very loud bang to the vehicle which has caused damage to the vehicle including onboard safety systems and requires inspection and repair by the vehicle dealership.

I hit this pothole o Friday January 13th 2023 at 1.15pm. Blew out front nearside tyre and damage to rear nearside tyre requiring replacement. £500 of new tyres and wheels need straightening. How can I claim for this?

I hit the pothole twice today going southbound. The impact was so significant that it moved my steering wheel on both occasions. It also has caused other cars to actively swerve to change lanes and avoid it. It will cause a major accident if it isn't repaired soon. And it's also causing damage to vehicles.

I hit this pothole yesterday evening. Almighty bang to my car. Luckily no damage but could have been a lot different going by the comments on this post!
