I could not agree more with Jacqui Holtam (Pothole Shame, News Views, July 16).
I was hoping the council would take advantage of fewer cars being on the roads during lockdown to do a proper job of repairs.
How stupid of me! Of course, they were only ever going to be patched up.
I can’t help thinking thinking this is only a short-term saving for the council given they only have to repeat the repairs going forward. — K. MORLEY, Newark, via email.
