Promise of action on Westgate pothole

This morning I had a meeting with our local highways engineer to  discuss a range of issues including the ever expanding pothole outside the Westgate Inn.

Although not hugely deep, the pothole is now more than five feet long and getting bigger all the time.

Thousands of cars pass over this spot every day and each one runs the risk of damaging tyres and suspensions - and it's not great for people in the car either.

Originally, a temporary patch was planned, but the council will now be undertaking a full repair within the next week or so.

It's been a fortnight and it's still there. It's now got a Vauxhall Combo van in it as I forgot it was there this morning in the dark.
So if the council do come out to fix it, could you get them to pull my van out before backfilling the hole.
Thanks ;-)
