Figures published by the RAC suggest the problem of potholes on Britain’s roads is getting worse. The motoring organisation says that it was called out to 25,487 pothole-related breakdowns in 2015, a rise of 24% year on year. The figures show that drivers in the south-east experienced the sharpest increase in pothole-related callouts, at 2,686 - a rise of 62%. Meanwhile, the total of 4,547 drivers affected by potholes in East Anglia made this area the most prolific region for callouts.
