It was brought to my attention that there was a large pothole on Cookridge Lane. I took this up with Highways and set out below is the reply I have received from the Highways Operations Manager:

“The deterioration here was rather quick, I didn’t notice it on Friday, but it was clearly a significant defect had developed.

We attended yesterday following a report by the Police but we could not repair immediately due to the depth of water at this location. It was signed and coned. We will make the area safe as soon as it dries out and arrange for a permanent repair over the next few weeks. “
