Slow down and report potholes
MOTORISTS in Gloucestershire have been urged to report new potholes caused by the wintry weather.
Compensation claims paid out by councils across the west to people whose cars were damaged by the road defects have now topped £1 million.
Residents have voiced fears the county council is struggling to keep up with the backlog of repairs needed following cold winters in 2010 and 2011.
And amid snow and ice in the county this week, concerns have been raised that potholes are emerging at a faster rate than they can be fixed.
