She later learnt another two cars had been affected.

Essex County Council plans to make full repairs in the next four to six weeks.

Emergency temporary repairs have been carried out in the meantime.

When I challenged my local MP regarding pot holes and the over all state of the roads in and around Maldon I was given the reply re' potholes and I quote: "As soon as one pot hole is filled another appears". If it wasn't so damned serious the comment might even be a little funny. Essex roads are among the worse in the country.
