Extra funding from the government has been requested to help pay for repairs to potholes and damaged roads in Herts caused by another winter of extreme weather.

Herts County Council is expecting to hear within the next few weeks whether it has been successful in its bid for a share of a national flooding relief fund.

Councillor Terry Douris, who oversees highways, said: “Unfortunately we’ve had another winter of extreme weather. Hertfordshire residents were affected and, although perhaps not as badly as some other parts of the UK, the sustained heavy rain has caused damage throughout the county and had a major impact on roads.
