Road surface collapsing where badgers have tunneled under the road from a sett on the verge on the west side of the road.

Reported via mobile in the Pothole category anonymously at 10:36, Wednesday 3 April 2024

Sent to Rutland County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5799853.

Barriers were put up against the sett some time ago as it could be clearly seen that badgers had tunneled under the road. No further action was taken and now the road is collapsing on the other side. This morning there is another crack in the surface, I guess it will only be a matter of a few vehicles driving over before more collapse and a seriously large hole. This is dangerous and will cause vehicle damage, could easily lead to an accident.
