RESIDENTS have helped Clacton MP Douglas Carswell to get more than 200 pot holes repaired.
Mr Carswell called on residents to report potholes to him, so he could take up the issue with highways authority Essex County Council
He contacted thousands of local people to ask them to report problem potholes, following which 223 potholes were recorded.
“After a prolonged winter, the potholes were worse than usual,” said Mr Carswell.
"Thousands of pairs of eyes are better than just one, so having lots of people help report problem potholes really helped flag up where action was most needed.”
