A plumber who became so fed up with a pothole damaging his vans he bought an £11.99 bag of asphalt – and filled it in himself.
Shane Smith carried out the repair after a six-inch deep hole appeared at the junction of Kettering Road and Gores Lane in Market Harborough.
He said that he took the action because he was fed up with the vans his business uses having to have their suspensions repaired because of pot holes.
We're aware of the problem with the pothole. Because of where it is and the volume of traffic, the safe way to make a permanent repair is to close the junction using temporary traffic lights and we'll be doing that in the next couple of weeks. While there may be a year-on-year variation in the number of claims and value of compensation payments, we do have much fewer potholes appearing than in previous years."
