Potholes on a major road in Burton are so bad that one resident got his clubs out for a game of 'crazy golf' with a difference.

John Anderson was so fed up with the potholes that he decided to have a round of golf on Shobnall Road.

The 57-year-old says he is concerned for cyclists and motorcyclists using the road as well as drivers, saying conditions are dangerous enough for accidents.

Mr Anderson, who has previously found a pothole in Field Lane, Outwoods, that was so big he got out his fishing line for a spot of angling, said he wants to look at potholes in a "positive light" because the area is "infested."

Helen Fisher, Staffordshire County Council's cabinet support member for highways and transport, has said that work had already been carried out in Shobnall Road.
