VILLAGES across Tendring are ‘plagued’ with potholes making roads close to unusable according to councillors.

In Lawford Bargate Lane is littered with potholes and concerns have been raised only the part of the road which falls into the Dedham Parish has been repaired.

Speaking at the latest Lawford Parish Council, chairman Alan Coley, said: “Bargate Lane has got to the stage where you can’t use it now. It’s the whole width of the road."
