A greater share of a multi-million pound fund being set aside to repair the country's potholes is to be handed to England's "model" councils.
More than three million potholes will be filled in by March next year as part of the biggest investment in roads since the 1970s.
The Government has set aside £168 million to mend the nation's broken roads, spread across 148 councils. Coucils will get a share, but extra will be given to those demonstrating "best practice in highways maintenance", including bringing in specialist machinery or setting up dedicated repair teams.
