MP welcomes plan to spend £1.7m on local potholes
Gerry Butter, MP for Shepton South has welcomed the announcement that extra funding has been made available for the region's ailing road network. "Potholes have always been my passion," says Mr Butter. "Unfortunately we get far fewer than our fair share in my constituency. "At the last survey Shepton North had almost twice as many potholes as us, and as for Shepton Central I believe that most motorists consider it a no-go zone. Finally we are going to have the means to put that right and I for one will be first in the queue with my jackhammer so we can finally fuck our highways up properly."
