104227Photo #104227I've more or less given up reporting potholes in Cambridge, but this one is bad, with loose stones being thrown around. In addition, if a driver knocked someone down on the zebra crossing they'd get away with it, as any competent lawyer would argue that the crossing has essentially vanished.Pothole:

104107Photo #104107Emergency ambulances attending addresses in Thoday Street stop in the middle of the road and sometimes remain there for around an hour. Motor traffic is left to stare at the back of the ambulance and there are intermittent toots from some of the vehicles in the queue. We've also had loud music blasting out of one the vehicles.

This is the second time in a month that this has happened.
