With the cold weather continuing, potholes are appearing everywhere and our roads are becoming an embarrassment. Severe winters and flooding across the country has left our roads in disrepair.

Research has shown that Scotland was the worst place for drivers, with more than 40% of respondents suffering some sort of damage.

Thousands of drivers have suffered damage to their cars as a result of potholes, including serious damage to suspension, steering and bodywork.
