Potholes causing danger

We are still cursed with a multitude of potholes dangerous to motorists, cyclists and pedestrians and I have reported many of these to our council.

They say potholes less than 12x12x4 inches are not classed as potholes and will therefore not be repaired.

Also they say that three main roads in Whitley Bay will soon be totally repaired and resurfaced, resulting in no money being left over to repair any potholes whatsoever.

It was after much argument with Environmental Services when I finally got to talk to the Highways Department of our council, i.e We’ve had it!

Our officials run the council, not our councillors?
