A pothole has cost Peterborough City Council £10,000 after a Ferrari driver took them to court.

Scott Nicholas who lives near Stamford said he did it on principle after his Ferrari 458's wheel and suspension were damaged when he hit the pothole near Ufford.

Peterborough City Council say they have accepted the court's ruling and will pay the fine.

Scott says he will hand the money to a local children's charity.

"I just think we're expected to put up with it. As if it's a daily occurence. The roads have never been in such a bad state and it has not been a particularly bad winter I don't think."
