If a pothole is an immediate risk to public safety, phone 01243 642105. You can report an emergency 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Further information on reporting an emergency can be found on Report an emergency with a road or pavement.
Please provide as much detail as you can about the size of the pothole (width and depth) and exact location (for example, road name, opposite house number or landmark, position in the carriageway, by junction). This will help us respond quicker.
