He said: “This is bigger than a normal pothole. If a cyclist went down it I think it could cause a serious accident.

“I am standing here to direct traffic until the council come to fix it because I wouldn’t want to walk away and then hear of an accident later.”

A county council spokesman said a Highways inspector has inspected the scene and a crew will repair it this afternoon, Friday.
