Prime Minister David Cameron met with representatives from the Stapleford Action Group to discuss potholes during a recent visit.

The PM visited areas of Nottingham following on from the Government’s announcement that millions of pounds will be invested in fixing the country’s potholes.

Nottinghamshire County Council will receive £2.7 million to carry out the work.

The PM told the Advertiser: “I am here because pothole investment is important. Lots of hard working people are having to spend far too much money because of potholes. We asked councils to bid for money.”

He said the money would go towards repairing 52,000 potholes in Nottinghamshire, meaning people would spend less money on repairing their vehicles that had been damaged by driving over potholes in the road.

All repair work will have to be complete by March next year.
