LESLEY KEATING: A white-knuckle pursuit ending with a lesson in trust

Have your say

Did you hear about the man who sued Essex County Council after potholes caused major damage to his car?

No, this is not a joke, he won!

Potholes are the scourge of the modern driver and maybe legal action against councils is the only way something will get done.

But repair work costs millions and I appreciate the money has to come from somewhere.

For me, it’s about the materials we use and how we lay our roads.

After all, potholes are not a problem on those beautifully smooth surfaces in France.

Can’t we send highways bosses on a driving holiday to France to see the enormous difference?
