Where are the worst potholes in Bridgwater?
THE combination of freezing and thawing, and the occasional rain shower, are not just a reason to want to pull the duvet over your head and stay in bed all day.
They are also the perfect recipe for pot holes.
Somerset County Council has this week been given £5million from the Department of Transport to sort out potholes on the county’s roads.
More than 20,000 were fixed in 2012 and Cllr Harvey Siggs, the council’s highways boss, said: “Last year was the second wettest year since rainfall records began, meaning road surfaces have been more badly affected by wear and tear than would usually be expected.”
Mercury photographer Jeff Searle has been scouring Bridgwater in search of the area’s worst pot holes – some of which are pictured here.
