HIGHWAYS bosses are filling between 10 and 20 potholes a day as they try to patch up North Somerset's ailing roads.

HIGHWAYS bosses are filling between 10 and 20 potholes a day as they try to patch up North Somerset's ailing roads.

As a result they cannot complete a survey of the district and people are being asked to report the worst dips.

North Somerset Council says it is making sure the worst potholes are being prioritised after the recent cold weather.

The unitary authority's deputy leader and executive member for highways, Councillor Elfan Ap Rees, said: "The weather has not been kind to our roads, but we have already been tackling the large number of potholes that have appeared.

"It is frustrating because we were beginning to get on top of the situation before the cold weather.

"We would ask people to drive carefully on the roads while we are still working to fix the problems."

To report a pothole contact streets and open spaces on 01934 888 802 or email streetsandopenspaces@n-somerset.gov.uk
