    Claims for pothole damage treble in Kent

    The number of claims filed by drivers in Kent for pothole damage nearly trebled last year to 3,474, figures released by the county council show.
    It has so far paid out £56,113 to settle compensation claims lodged in 2010, but the figure will rise because many remain outstanding. In 2009, the council paid out £111,234 after 1,196 claims for vehicle damage.
    The council said fixing potholes was its top priority on the roads, which it wanted to keep as safe as possible.
    The head of AA roads policy, Paul Watters, said the increase in the number of claims against Kent County Council (KCC) was a big leap. "It is disappointing there are so many claims because it shows there are so many roads at breaking point that need proper repair," he said.
