The true depth of the Essex pothole problem has been revealed in a very shocking study!
A study by confused.com revealed how Hertfordshire has the deepest pothole problem in the East of England, with Essex following right behind with 18,022 potholes across the county.
The report suggested that the potholes had a total depth of 901 and an alarming £5,150,000 had been spent by local councils trying to repair them whilst compensation costs were sat at £38,393.
Having this many potholes can be a very costly job for councils, as they fork out for repairs, as well as compensation to victims of damage caused by the craters in the road. In fact, a third (33%) of motorists in the UK say their car has been damaged by a pothole.
