I HAVE just read this week's Messenger about the pothole debacle.

Lunchtime today I hit a pothole on the A56 at the junction of the M60 slip road and the M60 flyover near the historic border sign between Lancashire and Cheshire, heading towards Sale.

The pothole is in the centre lane.

Unable to avoid due to other traffic, this resulted in my front offside tyre being destroyed and knocking the front wheel out of alignment.

Kwik Fit says it has a constant stream of drivers calling in after hitting the same pothole.

The photo attached shows my wallet, which is approx four inches square, almost disappearing in the hole.
