Nottinghamshire is the UK’s worst region for potholed roads with a staggering quarter of a million holes reported to the local council, according to new data.

The East Midlands council reported 106,000 more potholes than the next worst council area – Devon County Council – between January 2017 and June 2019, according to data obtained through a Freedom of Information inquiry.

However, Nottinghamshire County Council was only the second biggest spender on repairing potholes with its £12 million a year eclipsed by the £14m spent in Hertfordshire.

The UK’s worst regions for potholes, as well as those with the fewest problems, have been revealed in figures obtained by MoneySuperMarket.
