I would like to offer my deepest condolences to the family after this tragic incident.
It is important to say that we had not been made aware of any of potholes at this location prior to the incident, and the A631 is generally in a good condition. As soon as the police alerted us to it following the accident, we responded immediately.
However, this is an on-going police investigation and therefore it is not appropriate for me to comment any further at this time.
