Plymouth cul de sac like a rough track thanks to potholes
POTHOLES have turned a Plympton cul de sac into something more like a rough track, say residents.
Jill Brown, who lives in Longacre in Woodford with her disabled husband, sent for Pothole Pete.
She told The Herald's resident campaigner that the road began to break up last year, well before the floods and icy weather.
"It's like going over a rough track and it doesn't do your car's suspension any good," said Mrs Brown. "The potholes have got progressively worse."

She said workmen from Amey, the council's roads contractor, came last week to repair two holes at one end of the road, but left several others untouched.
"This patching-up is ridiculous, but I know they can't resurface all the roads," Mrs Brown said. "Still, we have to pay our road tax."
Amey was unable to provide a comment.
