Damaged your car on a pothole? Here's what to do if you want compensation
A motorist has spoken of his anger after spending FIVE months trying to claim £45 for pothole damage to his car.
Neil Petrie claims he blew a tyre in a road defect hidden in a puddle on Leeds Road at Bradley last May.
He attempted to claim compensation from Kirklees Council only to be told the incident had occurred on Calderdale’s roads.
The boundary line falls on the bridge over the River Calder, close to the Land Rover dealership.
Mr Petrie duly re-directed his claim to officials in Halifax who after four months concluded his claim was Kirklees’ to consider.
