Pothole injury

Warren Peters, 45, was cycling to Petersfield from work at Milland where he is a director at the Meon Survey Partnership when he was catapulted over his handlebars after hitting a 13cm deep pothole on Harting Combe. "Surface water or a puddle was across most of my side of the carriageway, I went through the puddle and hit a large pothole and went over the handlebars, landing on my face," he said.

"I suffered multiple fractures, a broken nose, broken upper jaw and about five or six other complicated fractures as well as a lot of stitches.
My upper jaw doesn't match my lower jaw and I won't know for another six months whether they are going to align. I have to be careful when I eat.
