Pothole damage has prompted pay-outs of more than £800,000 to drivers in Devon and Cornwall in the past six years.

Local authority figures show drivers in Devon have been paid 15 times more than motorists in Cornwall – who have been compensated with nearly £45,000.

Spending on pothole repairs has also risen by an extra £65,000 a week in Devon.
