Sutton Bridge Parish council is going potty asking county highways to fix potholes on their patch.

The council always discusses highways issues at its monthly meeting and vice-chairman Michael Booth summed up the item in three words: “Potholes, potholes, potholes.”

Councillors are complaining about the county council failing to fix potholes when they are reported to the authority.

Parish council chairman John Grimwood said: “I was down the M6 on Sunday and there were massive potholes in the M6 – I don’t know what chance we stand of getting them done round here.”

Coun Booth said: “I think it would be easier to name a road that hasn’t got them.

“I don’t think there’s any roads that don’t need some work doing on them.”
