Fed up with the state of the city's roads, 'guerilla gardeners' are filling Bath's potholes with flowers.

Jason Dorley-Brown and friends want to draw attention to what he calls a potential "death trap".

Without being too dramatic [they are] potentially a death trap, for cyclists especially and then you have the damage to cars.

Back in January it was announced that Bath and North East Somerset Council was to receive 4.4 million pounds to tackle the state of the roads - including repairing potholes. The campaigners insist this is not an anti-council act, they just want to see that money spent on repairing more holes.
