The government is giving councils in England £168m for pothole repairs, to be shared between 148 local authorities.

Ministers say that should allow up to three million potholes to be fixed by March 2015.

The AA says the funding is welcome, but it wants more to be done to stop the roads disintegrating in the first place.
