They are a menace to every motorist, but potholes will today become the subject of a film released by Norfolk County Council.

The council is highlighting its never-ending battle against the problem, and estimates it has fixed more than 7,000 over the past year.

The documentary-style film, Potholehunters, follows the highways teams fixing potholes in the north and south of the county. Filmed at the end of March, it shows a team fixing an urgent ‘priority B’ pothole on a road near Trunch and another team doing scheduled repairs along a road just outside Ketteringham.

It also features interviews with the workers and tells people how they can report potholes to the three authorities responsible.

The council will also tweet pothole-related photos, facts and information throughout the day using the hashtag #potholehunters.

David Harrison, cabinet member for environment, transport, development and waste, said: “Potholes are a nuisance, and they can be a danger, but they are unfortunately a fact of life. We want people to know that our highways teams work hard to repair our roads, get the job done effectively and efficiently, and take a real pride in their work.”

Phone Norfolk County Council on 0344 800 8020 to report dangerous pot holes, and highlight others at www.norfolk.gov.uk/potholes, giving as much information as possible about size and location.
