Q636: I have just seen a dangerous pothole in the road. Who should I call to get it repaired?

You should contact your local council or roads department who are responsible for inspecting and carrying out repairs to roads and pavements. If the pothole is dangerous the Council may take emergency action, otherwise repair may take place as part of a regular long term maintenance programme.

If life threatening contact the police on 999.

See the website in related information to find out your local council's details.
