Staffordshire is to receive £2.1 million from a £183 million government fund to repair local roads damaged by severe weather.

This is an emergency payment from the government to help with road repairs following the wettest winter on record.

On top of the money being shared out to councils today, the Chancellor of the Exchequer announced in the 19 March Budget that another £200 million will be provided for pothole repairs in financial year 2014 to 2015.

The extra money is being distributed now to ensure that repairs can be started as soon as possible, so that the majority of the damage can be fixed ahead of the summer holidays.

The money is being shared by 116 local highway authorities in England.
