Pothole Pete back out on the street
INTREPID campaigner Pothole Pete has been out and about in Plympton on his mission to improve the city's roads.
The Herald's own pothole crusader checked out craters in Longcause Road and Merafield Road on Monday.
A Plymouth City Council spokeswoman said: "A number of potholes in Longcause Road and Merafield Road were repaired on January 5 following reports to our Watchman team. No further reports have been received, but we will re-visit the roads to carry out a further inspection.
"Plymouth Transport and Highways carry out regular inspections of the city's roads but potholes can develop very quickly, particularly following periods of prolonged wet weather, so reports from members of the public are a great help to us.
