Almost four and a half million pounds is handed to Cornwall to help fix potholes.

Ministers reckon the cash will repair around 81 thousand across the Duchy.

Councils had to bid for a share of the government funding which comes in the wake of the winter storms.

Roads minister Robert Goodwill said: "We all know as we drive round that potholes keep appearing and this isn't a sort of problem you can fix once and for all. If you have a very frosty winter then the frost heave creates these potholes and if you have a wet winter of course you get ground water bubbling up; you've got to keep ahead of the game."

The AA is welcoming the money but the motoring group is worried it will not go far enough.

Spokesman Ian Crowder said: "Any funding is a good thing in helping to get Britain's crumbling roads put right but it is probably nowhere near enough to meet the real cost of putting Britain's roads back into order."
