_47222628_-2.jpgAs Wrexham council plans to spent an extra £100,000 to repair potholes and the assembly government is to give Welsh councils £2.75m to help repair potholes on Wales' roads, here's how people can report a pothole and get it fixed.

Firstly, you can report the problem to your local council - Denbighshire, Flintshire and Wrexham - or alert your local councillor.

Meanwhile, other people have been raising such problems with online help group and charity as they can pass on complaints to the right authorities.

Searching the site you can see people have serious concerns about the state of their roads, like Steve in Wrexham who writes: "Dangerous potholes just at the base of the Berwig Hill on a bend and next to the junction with Maes y Ffynnon Road, the area is unlit. If a motorcycle were to hit them in the dark someone could be seriously injured or killed."

'Dangerous roads' are also an issue in Denbighshire and potholes are among a host of problems being raised in Flintshire.

Finally, the Daily Post is attempting to map potholes in the region to highlight the widespread problem.

Something similar has been done by hyperlocal websites such as Hashbrum in Birmingham.
