A WISBECH family claim cracks have formed in their home from lorries pounding along a busy road which is filled with pot holes.
Lisa Goddard, 29, and her husband Bradley said cracks have formed on the outside of their property in Leverington Road as a result of large lorries vibrating their home after they drive over the holes.
Mrs Goddard said the problem is so bad it keeps the couple awake at night as a result of the shaking of their home and the large bangs from the lorries.
She said cracks have formed on the side of her property and she is concerned that more could come as a result of the vibrations.

And in recent days the pot holes have become larger and in their view more dangerous.
Mrs Goddard said there are around 12 pot holes along a short distance of the road and three of them are just outside her driveway.

She said the pot holes have been repaired three times, but they continue to form again very quickly.
She said: "It feels like a mini earthquake when the lorries fall into the pot hole. The vibrations are horrific.
"I am concerned and fed up and I just want the council to do something about it."
A spokesman for Cambridgeshire County Council said there had been an increase in pot holes occurring on routes across the county as result of the recent cold spell.
He said pot holes teams were being sent out on a regular basis and that he would report the incident along Leverington Road to the relevant department.
Due to the recent cold spell, water in the pot holes had frozen and expanded causing further problems.
Experts have said that the recent heavy snowfall and ice that councils across Britain could be left patching up more than one million holes in the space of a year.
