STONE MP Bill Cash is going into battle on behalf of constituents plagued by pothole problems on country roads around the area.

The MP (pictured right) said residents were frustrated by the "gaping potholes" on roads in parts of Stone, Gnosall, Little Onn and Church Eaton.

"We have a situation, for example, where taxi drivers refuse to enter the area because of the matter," Mr Cash said. "Stone, Gnosall, Little Onn, Church Eaton and the surrounding villages are in urgent need of road repairs."

He urged any constituents who were affected by potholes on their local roads to contact him with the location and if possible, any photographs they have taken of the potholes and the state of the roads.

"I will take up their concerns with Staffordshire County Council," Mr Cash, right, pledged."Staffordshire has won more than £2 million to help repair roads.

"I have taken up the matter with the council, other M Ps and with the Secretary of State for Transport to find a means of getting potholes repaired at a reasonable cost.There are other methods which could be employed."
