A wet summer and a bad winter has led to a dramatic rise in serious road defects around Dorset.

The County Council says the number of surface repairs are up 50% on last year

With pot holes and big chunks of tarmac missing across Dorset's roads they have become a nothing short of a headache for motorists.

Dorset Highway Officials admit that some of our roads are in a bad state but they've been given a boost to the tune of an extra 2 million pounds to their maintenance budget.

It will allow them to spend more on repairing defects, improving drainage and strengthen bridges around the County.

Bosses say the money is much needed and will, over the next two years, will make Dorset's roads safer.
