An extra nine teams will be working to fix potholes caused by the recent severe flooding, a council has said.

Worcestershire County Council said it will have 23 gangs in total repairing damage over the next few weeks.

The council said it was spending about £700,000 from its existing highways budget to carry out the work.

In the last two weeks about 850 potholes have been repaired and that number "is expected to rise", a council statement said.

Councillor John Smith said: "We recognise that and how important it is to fix any problems as quickly as possible, which is why we've put extra teams in place."
