POTHOLES are a concern for a city resident.

Debbie Fowler, 59, lives in the Arboretum area of Worcester.

Mrs Fowler said: “This is a massive issue across the city at the moment.

“I’m a car driver and it worries me the damage they could do.

“I can’t walk on the pavements in this area they are that bad and I walk on the road like I’ve seen other people do.

“Other parts of the city seem to get looked after better so why not this part?”

Mrs Fowler submitted a photograph (left) of a workman filling what appears to be a hole in the road on Sansome Walk in the Arboretum area yesterday.

The pothole was reported by an unknown person to Worcestershire County Council.

A spokesperson for Worcestershire County Council said: “Once we were aware of the issue, we had inspectors onsite from around 7.30am this morning.

“The pothole was blocked off so that other motorists were not able to drive in it, and a temporary repair has been carried out.

“We are continuing to both investigate and monitor the situation, and we’re looking to install the permanent repair as soon as possible.”

Councillor Alan Amos, cabinet member with responsibility for Highways said: “The condition of the county’s roads and pavements has been a priority of the County Council for many years now. No reports of any problems in this particular area have been brought to our attention. We take any complaints about the condition of our roads and footways extremely seriously and would encourage people to bring any issues to our attention using the Report It function of our website.”
