    Could you put an internal patch on a stalk through the hole? Sorry, I don’t know the proper name of these but have some in the garage.

    If you lived near here I’d do it for you.

    The ‘stalk’ on a mushroom patch must be at least 5mm near the base so may have been ok?

    Sorry to hear that. But as yet I have not had a puncture I've not been able to repair with either Stop n' Go mushrooms or Monkey Shits or a combo of both... Guess I've been lucky.
    Oh and by the way. All tyre dealer will tell you that no puncture is fixable.
