The recent cold snap has made the situation on many roads much worse. Jonathan Gibson has been taking a look at a few of the ones you've highlighted:
Thanks to everyone who's got in touch with us so far on this issue - some amazing images and tales. It's been such a talking point that we've decided to try to find the worst pothole in the West Country.
