Tyre Destroyed by Ratchet strap or Pothole - claim?

I went over the metal part of a ratchet strap that was strewn over the road and then immediately went over a pothole. This caused a gash in my tyre which quickly deflated and went flat.

The replacement cost £130. Can I apply to claim the costs back? If so who would I write to and how should I go about it for the best chance of being successful? 

Many thanks
