This example is on Oxford Road, just outside the 8th Day Co-op.
It's around 20cm deep and around 70cm in diameter.
It has been like this since before christmas and the road is also breaking up on both sides of the main hole.
The roads in central Manchester are getting really bad at the moment, and it makes cycling a lot less comfortable, especially if you have a small wheeled bike.
Still this pothole is a pretty small example.
The MEN reported back in December a car getting stuck as a water main collapsed.

This particular hole was soon repaired, but many more bike wheel sized holes are still out there.
