Utility companies in Bedford ordered to repair roads

Utility companies ordered to repair roads after not putting things back properly.

Utility companies who have dug up roads in Bedford have been told off for not putting things back properly afterwards.

Bedford Borough Council says the roads do need to be dug up for gas, electric, water and communication works.

But it says more than a third of the repairs it's examined have not been up to standard. It's now called back those responsible, who will have to do the work again.
