Lots of potholes going down the hill, very dangerous for cyclists. I hit one on the way down today and it caused my bike tyre to blow and I came off my bike - nothing I could do. Please fix asap before someone gets seriously hurt

Sorry, how is no further action required? Genuinely I could have died following the puncture caused by potholes, I was fortunate a car was not coming in the other direction when I came off my bike. There are multiple on that stretch of road that could cause serious injuries to cyclists. I have not taken photos because the only way to do so would be to stop in the middle of what is quite a busy road. If you need photos though, I can stop the traffic and take photos.
