Man left '£250 out of pocket' through pothole damage

Stoke City Council say they are not liable and that they have teams who inspect roads every day for damage

A man from Stoke-on-Trent has been left more than £250 out of pocket because of pothole damage to his car.

Gerry McNeish applied to the council for compensation but was told he would not get any because the pothole was not visible when the road was inspected 6 months earlier.
