Kent County Council steps up 'post-winter blitz' on potholes

The number of highways gangs repairing roads across Kent is set to double as the county council steps up its "post-winter blitz" on potholes.

More than 30 additional crews are being drafted in, with residents being asked to identify the worst defects.

More than 20,000 potholes have already been repaired this year, Kent County Council said.

John Burr, director of highways and transportation, said many repairs were "permanent first-time fixes".
