Councils in the East of England are being given a total of more than £17 million to repair potholes.

The funding is part of a national pot worth around £184 million.

Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin said: “Damage to roads causes misery for drivers and local communities and the severe weather over the last few months has made the problem worse.

“This extra money will help make a real difference to the millions of road users and residents across the east of England who rely on local roads, giving them safer and smoother journeys.”
