Pothole repairs in Herefordshire 'to cost 5.5m'

Transport chiefs in Herefordshire have estimated it will cost £5.5m to repair potholes in the county's roads caused by the icy weather.

Herefordshire Council said water freezing, expanding and then breaking up road surfaces, had caused "considerable damage" to its roads.

Council leader Roger Phillips has written to the government asking for emergency funding to address the issue.

He urged anyone who saw a pothole to contact the council's street-care line.
