Farnworth street dubbed "worst in the country" for potholes

GIANT potholes are wreaking havoc for drivers in a rutted street in Farnworth that has been dubbed by residents as “the worst in the country”. Furious residents in Rawson Street say some of the potholes stretch up to 20ft in patches and have not been repaired for years. One resident, who did not wish to be named, said: “These potholes have been here for almost two years. “One at the top, near Market Street, is almost 20ft long. “It’s a busy road and it’s the only access to the cemetery. It must cause a lot of damage to cars driving down there.”
