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, giving as much information as possible about size and location.
