Roads in Stoke-on-Trent are to be improved with a £600,000 investment and 13 new highway workers, Stoke City Council has announced.

Around 3,000 potholes need filling in the city – a figure the council wants to lower with a new team employed to tackle the growing backlog.

Recruitment for the roles is now underway.
