COMMUTERS trying to beat the traffic to Worcester when floods closed the river bridge have caused pot holes along a road in Powick, near Malvern.

Councillor David Hall brought it to Powick Parish Council's attention at a meeting on Wednesday, March 5, that damage had been caused along King's End Road.

He said: "While Worcester bridge was closed, a lot of traffic was using that road from the bottom up to King's End Farm and we now have quite a few pot holes."

Vice chairman Colin Phillips said traffic backed-up through Malvern making cars find another route along King's End Road to the city centre to attempt to avoid long queues.

The pot holes will be officially reported to the Worcestershire County Council hub to be repaired.
