How Much Potholes Are Costing Cornwall
7:03am 15th November 2014
There are calls for Cornwall's potholes to be taken to task.
It is after Pirate FM revealed almost £1.5 million was spent on fixing them in 2012
£11,000 was also paid out by Cornwall Council in claims for damage to cars.
Insurance expert Emma Banks says the problem is only going to get worse.
She said: "The problem is that councils tend to use short term solutions, and the average cost of fixing this damage is about 120 to 150 pounds, so it is not small change and you can't blame motorists for claiming this compensation back.
"The compensation is really being paid for by all of us because it comes out of our council tax, when you look at the number of claims that are made it must be the tip of the iceberg because I think a lot of motorists have a bit of minor damage to their car and don't really bother claiming that compensation."7:03am 15th November 2014
