Response to Essex pothole complaint a 'waste of money'

Help

A driver from Essex who complained to his council over pothole damage was sent a 186-page road maintenance document in return.

Terry Rothery claimed £42 compensation after his car hit a massive pothole near his home at Billericay.

Mr Rothery said the document sent to him in response to his complaint was "barmy bureaucracy".
